My Story

I am grateful to have spent the last 20+ years immersed in the Talent Acquisition industry, including senior leadership roles with Adecco, BlackBerry, PointClickCare, Lightspeed, and Wealthsimple. I am also an advisor and mentor to many high-growth start-ups and scale-ups in the tech industry.

While my consulting and advisory roles span the full spectrum of talent, my areas of expertise are focused on Employer Branding, Executive Recruitment, Workforce & Succession Planning, Talent Development, and fractional Chief Talent Officer roles.

You can connect with me on LinkedIn, Instagram, and subscribe to receive my semi-regular but not excessive blog posts.

About the Comics

Even with a concise format, a well-written comic shines a spotlight on the perils of conventional wisdom. The medium of a comic strip, often using as little real estate as a single panel, allows you to strip away the noise and challenge the status quo.

In the Talent industry, there is an abundance of misconceptions, traditions, and absurdities that are rarely challenged and improved. I’m less concerned about inducing a LOL from the reader, and would rather a smirk, head nod, or preferably, a call to action. 

About the Whiteboards

I love everything that a whiteboard stands for: a blank canvas to brainstorm, design, challenge, and collaborate. While my cartoons serve to highlight a problem, the whiteboard is the first step to unearthing a better product or solution. 

If I had to attend one meeting for the rest of my life, I would be in front of a blank whiteboard with a room full of eager contributors. Whether it’s a physical or digital whiteboard, the intent is the same – to share and iterate on ideas. I named this blog Whiteboard Talent because the talent industry is ready for disruption and innovation. It’s time to grab the marker!
