Consulting in marketing and management over her career, Shannon has worked with private, public and not-for-profit organizations in their marketing, leadership and management development.  Shannon has facilitated coaching workshops for federal government middle managers; developed an extensive educational outreach program for a cement company’s environmentally-sensitive stakeholders; conducted marketing research on culture, arts and heritage; and co-facilitated conversations on the future of engineering education between academia, industry, and government.

A strategic thinker and planner, Shannon’s experience extends from management and marketing consulting and business coaching, to teaching/training. Shannon has delivered workshops, focus groups, strategic retreats, and numerous seminars.  Her style and skills communicate well in both the face-to-face and virtual environments.  She sits on the Douglas College Marketing Advisory Council, and is an active community member and volunteer.
