I have a passion for teaching and helping others realize their potential. As a Professor at the Graduate School of Management, GLOBIS University, I teach courses on Business Presentations, Critical Thinking, Innovation Through Virtual Teams, and Design Thinking to international MBA students, with an average student satisfaction rating of 94%.
Core to my teaching philosophy is interactivity. Nobody learns well from lectures. We learn from discussions, group assignments, feedback, and action learning. These are central to my training practice and every course I teach. When teaching remotely, I aim for interactivity and ensuring that even large groups are able to learn actively, through interaction with their peers.
As a member of the Teaching Team at IDEO U, I help global learners express their creative confidence through online courses on storytelling and design thinking.
I also love sharing ideas as a contributing writer for Forbes, Fast Company, and other publications. Please check out my Thought Leadership page for articles on storytelling, creativity, remote work, and business across borders.
For the past decade, I've managed global human resource projects for Ricoh Company Limited, creating and leading teams of HR professionals from around the world.
In my previous career, I spent two decades working for the federal government in Canada before pivoting my career into HR, training, and teaching. I gave a TEDx talk on how I made this shift and the importance of passion when planning any career pivot.
