Our Team

Tough Times Demand Smart, Savvy Team Players

Business is especially tough today. Growth is imperative but competition is now unrelentingly fierce and international. Profits are paramount, but today we recognize that so are people and planet. Tech advances and the changing global economy threaten disruption in all quarters, but many companies are unprepared and ill-equipped to compete in our changing world.

To thrive in today’s volatile times requires creative, bold business strategies based on solid market insights and the right people to support the growth. For well over 20 years we have helped scores of clients around the globe understand how the changing environment will impact their business and respond accordingly, to increase sales and improve their bottom lines.

We can help you prosper, too.

Our Senior Principals

Some of Our Executive Team - Business Growth Experts, University Lecturers, World-Renown Researchers

Seasoned corporate strategy experts:

We are intellectually-curious professionals who keep abreast of how business is changing on a global scale and what the most successful companies are doing to flourish. Over many years, we have worked with many companies (small, large and multinational), in multiple sectors in different countries around the world – and in some cases, run these companies, too.

Academic Affiliation and Excellence:

We are all authors and part-time professors or lecturers at the University of Toronto and other well-regarded institutions.

Many of the courses we’ve developed for use in undergraduate and graduate programs in various countries have been honed over the years, the content changing in tandem with our on-going research, and adapted for corporate use. Conversely, much of our practical business experience finds its way into our courses so participants learn what to do and why – as well as how to apply the knowledge in real life situations.


One of our team members introduced qualitative research to the Middle East in the 1980s, another has prepared documents for the Canadian government, the C.D. Howe Institute and other illustrious thought leaders. Extensive research has also been conducted on behalf of dozens of companies around the world and in the completion of PhD dissertations. Much of this research led to major business and tech innovation over the years.

Business Owners

In addition to helping other companies, we have all built successful businesses of our own, so we know first-hand the joys and perils of running corporations. Over years, we’ve had plenty of triumphs and, early in our careers, a few failures, too. We've all learned as much from the things that went awry as we have done from highly-successful projects… which is priceless in terms of risk mitigation.

In short, we’re a cohesive team with diverse experience and outlooks... a combination of inestimable value when it comes to accelerating corporate growth in challenging times.
