Lately, Upcoming and Next Stop!

Alliance Ambassadors

Alliance Ambassadors also known as "Innovation Torchbearers" attend the the Transforming Local Government Ambassador Networking event!


Ambassador Work                          

Greetings folks, lately the Alliance team and I have been working to create hands on tools to help our Ambassadors stay better engaged with us as well as inspire innovation throughout each ambassador’s respective organization! Look out for new tools this fall that will include train the trainer guides for internal discussions about innovation, conference in a box planning tools and more!

Consortiums Galore!

Our new Consortiums are going strong! I am currently the facilitator of three Alliance virtual networking groups 1) Lean Six Sigma 2) Canadian Thought Leaders and 3) Chief Innovation Officers. Our hope is that through these virtual groups participants will walk away with more professional connections as well as resources for current challenges! For example, the Lean Six Sigma group, where over 20 organizations from across the country are participating, is creating a resource guide together. The guide will include in house training guides, consultants contact information and more! The Canadian Thought Leaders group is currently looking at creating a public platform for restaurant inspections, while the Chief Innovations Officer Group is exploring how to build regional networking groups with other innovation officers–tons to be gained from participating!

Please email me at to join any of these groups – participation is free!
