AboutI'm a writer, strategist and increasingly impatient Canadian who's spent the past three decades researching and reporting on the conflicts and correlations between community values and massive technological, economic, social and environmental change.
To break the logjam around complex issues we need leaders willing to develop solutions that provide the greatest amount of good and the least amount of harm.
To do good, sometimes you gotta get wicked.
I’m an award-winning journalist, author, and strategist whose been writing about and wrestling with wicked problems* for over 30 years. If it’s complicated, contentious or controversial, I’ve been there, behind the barricades, in front of boardroom tables, and huddled in the bullpen with leaders in Canada and the U.S. across industry, government and non-profits who have big missions to achieve and small windows of opportunity to get it right.
I’ve written thousands of articles, won national awards for my reporting, political commentary and entrepreneurship, been a frequent guest on national radio and television, wrote a best-seller, planned and hosted large-scale events, led movements, advised on public policy development, helped companies both big and small shift operations towards sustainability, and become a leader in the North American BCorp movement, for-profit companies that meet high standards for social and environmental impact.
