Chris is a seasoned consultant who helps his clients bring about fundamental change in the organizations they lead. His experience spans over 25 years as a consultant, coach, mentor, and facilitator of senior leaders across North America, Western Europe, and Asia. Chris is a natural consultant, and to him, the work is a calling, a craft, and a passion. He serves by challenging and strengthening in order to build “hopeful realists”—and loves the intricate and often intensely personal process of helping leaders and their organizations grow and thrive, even in extremely challenging conditions. Many of his consulting relationships last for years, transitioning through the natural stages of growth as needs and conditions change. For many clients, the benefits of an experienced third party, who remains close enough for relevance yet removed enough for objectivity, has proven to provide a valuable resource to help through challenging times and achieve positive results.
Teacher, Church Leader
Jean was born and raised in Vancouver in a business family, active in the local Brethren Assembly, and a key source of leadership in the founding of Regent College. Jean trained as a teacher at UBC and taught primary school in both the Lower Mainland of BC and in the northern logging town of Quesnel. As a full-time parent of two (and later three) children, Jean sensed God’s call that drew her and her husband Chris, to a business education in London Ontario and a committed life of service to her family as Chris embarked on the peripatetic life of a management consultant … for 30 years. During these years, Jean welcomed countless strangers to her home, first in Oakville Ontario where she served on the leadership team of Chartwell Baptist Church, and for the last two decades, on their farm, near Guelph.
The farm is a busy and welcoming place for retreats, for workshops, concerts and simply a place of rest. After a lifetime of involvement with Inter Varsity, Jean served as a board member for four years, retiring to serve the particular needs of her family at that time. Jean’s passion is to create the spaces into which others can come, be welcomed and find joy.
