SELECTED PROJECT SUMMARIES
Client: Government of Canada
Topic: Multi-ministry Micro-Plastics Science Research Program
Summary: Canada has a mandate to lead the G-20 on the challenge of micro-plastics being found in marine and terrestrial environments worldwide. Vince designed and facilitated a three-day forum in Ottawa that brought 90+ policymakers, scientists and stakeholders from six ministries together to discuss, develop and launch a multi-year science research program. Advance messaging, outcome clarification, process design, data analysis, preparation of a facilitation team, and work with a multi-agency steering committee ensured the success of this intensive “summit”. A federally-funded micro-plastics research program and action plan was announced immediately afterwards.
Client: Canada Green Building Council
Topic: Strategic Planning re: Net Zero Buildings
Summary: Driving rapid national transformation to high-performing, healthy green buildings, homes and communities, the CaGBCcontracted Vince to design and facilitate several crucial strategy sessions drawing in a range of perspectives. Chief among these events was a strategic planning session that brought board members, leadership, and senior staff together to consider key trends, current priorities and an evolving set of programs and services. Working with their Industry Advisory Group (based in Toronto), Vince facilitated discussion of the resulting 3-year strategic plan, and generated additional considerations and ideas for ongoing marketplace transformation.
Client: TELUS Communications, Inc.
Topic: Strategic Social Capitalism Land Development
Summary: Seeking to serve vulnerable youth from across BC as well as local First Nations, and as evidence of the depth of its social capitalism commitments, TELUS recently purchased a 124 acre parcel of land located at Cawley Point on the Sunshine Coast. Erica and Vince worked together in designing and implementing the launch of the master planning and rezoning process, leading the strategic visioning retreat and helping deliver a report that is guiding the project team as it creates the full redevelopment application. Vendor sourcing and contracting was an essential deliverable in this work, as was coordinating across multiple TELUS departments, priorities and requirements. At the completion of the internal and external engagement phase, an approved master plan will enable full site development and strategic programming to serve the Cawley Point beneficiaries.
Client: Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games
Topic: Integrating local government with the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games
Summary: Essential to delivery of Canada’s Games, integration and alignment between the organizing committee and the Host Cities enabled essential municipal services to be delivered in the urban domain surrounding each Games Venue. The Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) was the non-profit organization responsible for planning, organizing, financing and staging the 2010 Winter Olympics and 2010 Winter Paralympics. Erica worked with the mountain venue municipality RMOW and the Regional District SLRD to organize work plans and manage issues resolution between our Municipal partners as service providers and funding partners and VANOC, and also supported the Communications team with community engagement on the Games time-plans.
