Recommended for work undertaken as a Consultant at Higher Education Strategy Associates

Glen was the lead consultant on the development of our Red River College Academic Plan from June 2015 to February 2016. He led a diverse team through every stage from stakeholder (internal and external) consultations to data collection/analysis and the writing of the final report. He is a thoughtful and perceptive facilitator, able to build trust quickly with the team members and keep the project on track despite various detours. He wrote two major reports (with various versions and iterations) that formed the basis for the final Plan. Everyone was impressed with his ability to capture themes, incorporate feedback and produce a beautifully written report. He is very client-focussed, always checking to ensure he has a clear understanding of client needs and expectations. His international post-secondary experience brought richness and depth to our discussions. As the internal lead on the Academic Plan, I drew upon Glen’s considerable experience to guide my own learning and was inspired by his insights on a number of occasions. He also served as a source of reason, calmness and encouragement during various times throughout the project. He is a trusted and highly skilled facilitator, researcher and writer. I would highly recommend Glen to support any team through a planning process or research project.
