Collaborations

A lot of my work is “behind the scenes,” and I often lend a pair of hands on larger projects. I play a few roles: facilitator, advisor, sparring partner, writer, researcher, or a mix of all of the above. On this page are some examples of my recent collaborations. I’d be happy to share more specifics in a conversation. Click here to get in touch.

I work with John Elkington's team at Volans, which serves as a market catalyst creating the conditions for business to embrace the challenges and opportunities of the 2020’s.
Recent work includes co-authoring (along with John Elkington and Jacqueline Lim) 
Volan’s 
Breakthrough Business Model report.
I also conduct my own independent consulting work, although these always amount to collaborative efforts too. For example, in August 2016 I facilitated a 3-day meeting with forestry stakeholders from 14 countries, in São Paulo, Brazil, leveraging my Portuguese language skills and forest industry knowledge. While I was there, I snapped this picture of one of the oldest living remnants of the Atlantic Forest.
I am an Associate at SustainAbility, a boutique advisory firm working with some of the world’s largest companies on engagements to create the future we want. I held a senior position at the firm from 2012-2016 before shifting back to an independent role once more. For more about my work with SustainAbility, browse recent posts and publications
My first role in the corporate responsibility field—from 2004-2008—was at Canadian Business for Social Responsibility, where I held a range of management roles before moving to New York. I currently sit on the organization’s Board and marvel at CEO Steven Fish’s ability to shape a relevant agenda for the very dynamic needs of the Canadian business community.
I lead client projects for BuzzWord, a leading strategy consultancy specializing in transparency and reporting. I first collaborated with Buzzword in 2011 and I continue to enjoy contributing to projects steered by company President and pioneering business woman, Leah Haygood.
I am a Release Council Member for the pioneering open source extra-financial performance management platform, the Future-Fit Business Benchmark and have been a thought partner in the benchmark’s development since it was a twinkle in co-founder Geoff Kendall’s eye.
