Sean has performed in a number of human service leadership and organizational development roles over the past twenty five years. His passion and continually expanding knowledge base is primarily in the areas of workplace culture and employment inclusion / accessibility. Sean has designed employment inclusion and supported entrepreneurship services in Calgary and in Treaty Seven, First Nation communities. Service design and proposal development are key areas of experience as is development of teams and organizations. Thirty years of service to people with disabilities (and every possible intersection of marginalization) has led to a a variety and depth of critical skills around ‘coaching’ inclusion behaviours and culture. This skill set is frequently leveraged by service providers and employers to build their capacity in either service development – or inclusive workplaces.
Helping organizations, boards, networks and committees to identify and drive mission-critical outcomes is a form of joy for Sean. Designing and delivering customized training sessions that generate real results and culture change is a genuine passion – as is collaboration and communications. Sean was the proud recipient of the 2018 Employment Inclusion Award from the Premier’s Council on the Status of Persons with Disabilities.
Sean possesses the ability to present meaningful and compelling information to colleagues, funders and partner organizations, and to truly hear their input and needs. His understanding of non-profit development, communications, effective leadership as well as employment and workplace issues is demonstrated in his philosophies and in his work. His experience with public speaking is extensive and includes training, conferences, funder presentations and media interviews (as well as 100+ alternative rock shows).
