He has helped over 100 organizations become better workplaces, including crown corporations, police forces, child protection agencies, manufacturing plants, fast-food restaurants, financial institutions, municipalities, Indigenous governments, universities and technical colleges, school divisions, supported living providers, churches and soup kitchen.
