“I saw immediate results after attending Gord’s training.” – Lisa Vanderkwaak

If you want to improve your organization by working directly with me, then I look forward to hearing from you.

I have facilitated, run & participated in more than 2000 meetings which means that I have dealt with just about every situation you can imagine.

I deliver a people-centred facilitation approach by combining the insights I have gained from all of these meetings with;

  • Over 25 years of work experience
  • A Masters Degree in Business Administration
  • A Bachelor’s Degree in Drama
  • Prosci Change Management Certification

Whatever Kind Of Meeting You’re Having, I Can Help

I can effectively help you to make these types of meetings more productive and profitable;

  • Corporate Board Meetings
  • Non-Profit Board Meetings
  • Corporate Staff Meetings
  • Mediation Meetings between Managers and their Staff
  • Community Meetings
  • Sport Association Meetings
  • Safety Meetings
  • and more!

“I saw immediate results after attending Gord’s training.  Key Board Members began implementing action steps sooner and following through with more focus and clarity.  Even after  2 hours with Gord, his training ignited greater awareness among team members which led to increased productivity and a higher standard of performance.”

Lisa Vanderkwaak, Board Chair – Beaumont Chamber of Commerce

“Over the years, I have been part of numerous planning sessions, but I have to say that Gord’s ability to get straight to the point and see through all of the cloudiness is inspirational. He has an uncanny gift of being able to read individuals and situations, while bringing out their best in a very short amount of time. He helped us to produce great results that are truly actionable.”

Cyndie Annett, Chair – Special Olympics Alberta-Edmonton

“Having gathered a group of smart and powerful people to consult on a potential new project, I was nervous; these were not people with time to waste. I put my trust in Gord to create a meeting that would make good use of the time they were spending in the room that day, and he did not disappoint. Somehow, he simultaneously fostered a relaxed and casual atmosphere while keeping us on topic and on schedule. He ushered us through an extremely productive and rewarding conversation but never gave us any feeling of being controlled or overly formal. Not only did we accomplish our objectives, several of my attendees commented to me afterwards on the quality of the meeting and the facilitation. I’m grateful to have had Gord in my corner that day.”
