An organizational psychologist by formal education, Ian is widely regarded as a possibility expert. His clients and colleagues frequently refer to and access his uncanny ability to see game-changing possibilities others don’t see and turn them into profitable new realities.
Ian’s been an entrepreneur since undergraduate days. Initially he focused his organizational transformation skills on the healthcare sector resulting in a sterling reputation across his native Canada. Over time, his work expanded into a wide variety of industries globally including technology companies, government ministries, professional services, education, manufacturing, finance and insurance, agriculture and retail operations. Major companies such as KPMG, Royal Bank of Canada and UNIFI retained his services for multiple years. Year after year he was able to expand their thinking to see the opportunities all around them.
Not only is he able to unify people and focus them on their highest possibilities, he is a gifted corporate speaker having presented to audiences around the world. This rare ability led to the honor of being inducted into both the USA and Canadian Speaker Halls of Fame. Successful Meetings magazine declared him “One of the top 21 speakers for the 21st century.”
Ian admits to having low tolerance for inconsequential incremental change. “There are such enormous possibilities available to all of us,” he insists, “why settle for less?” As one colleague put it, “Ian is a possibility magnet!”
He’s also written seven books and contributes frequently to various professional blogs and newsletters.
Ian and his wife Georgia live in Scottsdale, Arizona and have dual citizenship.
