Speaker Listing 7

started my career in sales, and have been one of those people who really enjoy the process of finding new customers. Whether that meant cold-calling prospects for IBM’s AS/400 line (those old school techies will understand) or setting executive sales meetings, I always loved the thrill of the hunt.
As a seasoned executive I work to drive meaningful change across Canada to support a more circular and sustainable economy. Recognizing the power of procurement in enabling us to "Purchase the future we want" I seek and drive collective work to advance the practice in Canada. Working collaboratively with many stakeholders, I recently completed work on the CCA Expert Panel on the Circular Economy for Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). The report "Turning point" examines the opportunities for Canada in the Circular Economy. I also sit on Minister Guilbeault's ECCC advisory panel on the Sustainable Development Act strategy.
