Robin’s Bio

I am a strategic thinker and effective leader with more 25 years of experience.

I have led strategic planning and business intelligence teams at Devon Energy and Bell Canada, and held marketing management roles at TELUS Mobility and MTS Mobility. I also taught marketing and business policy at Red Deer College.

I am a Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF) and Certified Technology of Participation (ToP) Facilitator (CTF) and strategist who believes that strategy can be elegant and effective without being overly complex. The strategic planning process creates thoughtful focus; execution makes the difference. Continuous attention to strategy has more value than an over-wrought process.

I have been facilitating meetings for many years and was trained by Roger Schwarz, one of the leading academics in the facilitation world today and ICA Associates, responsible for developing the renown Technology of Participation (ToP) method.

In collaboration with ICA Associates, I provide facilitation skills training for public and private (or in-house) courses.

I am a member of the International Association of Facilitators (IAF) and the ToP Network. I am an associate of ICA Associates and Lead2Perform.
