Since 2004, he has been the catalyst behind many strategic and creative alignments enhancing some of Western Canada’s leading companies, including Pacific Coastal Airlines, OpenRoad Auto Group, Iridia Medical, and Miku Restaurant.

Monster is about talent, mastery of self and a deep balance with the outside world
We don’t need another simplistic how-to book, in particular of the self-help, leadership or business “you can do it too” success genre that is dismissive of crucial context and what makes you uniquely you.
By understanding these principles, you can unlock your very own Billion Dollar Ideology. Simply put, being a Monster is an earned response from your market, employees, and stakeholders. It’s the resulting respect and admiration when everything is running well both internally and externally due to your efforts and diligence.
