What drives decision making? What brings teams together to achieve remarkable results? How do we inspire action and motivate people to say “yes” to joining us in realizing our vision?
Heath proves that trust and purpose- based on a palpable concern for others- are key to having a high performing team. When we’re clear about why we’re here, where we’re going, who we serve and how we’re getting there, people start to feel valued and fulfilled. As a consequence, the natural response is that people seek out ways to collaborate, execute, and bring bold visions to reality. This is the reason Heath believes that for all our differences, we are stronger together than we could ever be alone.
Heath is the only professional in Canada certified to deliver and facilitate the Principles of Persuasion, an evidence-based program based on the work of renowned psychologist Dr. Cialdini which dramatically enhances one’s ability to drive and inspire change.
Heath has a degree from the Wharton School of Business. He works with clients across the world in a variety of industries including government, international affairs, consumer products, restaurant, hospitality, telecommunications, education, non-profit, financial and banking services.
