“Business has only two functions--marketing and innovation.” -- Milan Kundera
As a successful innovator named one of "Vancouver's most promising young entrepreneurs" (The Globe and Mail), I know firsthand how important a role marketing has in getting ideas from concept to reality. In my career, I have been fortunate for the opportunity to combine my love of writing with my vision of change inspiring businesses--providing value to clients, including the CBC, UBC, the National Arts Council of Singapore, and the Banff Centre.
My diverse experience in the Education, Technology, Communications, and Publishing (author of two award-winning books, with writing published in Vancouver, Toronto, New York, Chicago, Singapore, and London) industries allows me to evaluate, support, and develop marketing strategies, using unconventional methodologies to design thinking as the way forward-realizing solutions others might not conceive.
I have also given talks on creativity, education, and leadership, including interviews on CBC Radio One and Chicago Public Radio. My ideas take many forms: from writing books and headlining conferences to mentoring creative thinkers at retreats and seminars.
MY AREAS OF STRENGTH:
✔ Content Creation & Management
✔ New Business Development
✔ Client Relations Management
✔ Cross-Functional Collaboration
✔ Critical & Analytical Thinking
✔ Research & Analysis
✔ Leadership & Team Building
