Guiding Principles

Old Growth Leadership Development was founded with a single purpose in mind: to help franchised organizations enhance and harness their existing people potential while working to advance strong, collaborative relationships between franchisees and franchisors.


I bring over two decades of hands-on, inspiring leadership experience from some of Canada's most iconic franchised brands A&W, White Spot & Boston Pizza Restaurants, working both for large multi-unit franchisee groups heading up operations and in executive leadership roles with the franchisors in operations, training and restaurant systems. My experience working with both franchisees and franchisors allows me to bring unique insights to this often-complex stakeholder relationship.  I also bring specialized, technical insights from my master's degree in organizational leadership with thesis research focused on how enhanced collaboration between franchisees and franchisors can lead to better business outcomes for both.

Specializing in franchisee and franchisor relationships through speaking engagements and strategic people planning initiatives that enhance your organization's collaborative leadership practices.
