Louise is an international speaker, educator and strategic change consultant.
Equipping and helping people design and implement valuable and effective change in their organizations is Louise's passion and expertise. She combines structured methodologies with out-of-the box thinking techniques and visual tools to empower people to discover new opportunities for addressing their challenges and reaching their goals.
For over 25 years she has led and advised the development and implementation of innovative technological, process, and organization change initiatives in large and small organizations. She has worked in various industry sectors including healthcare, finance, education, and transportation.
Louise has always had a people-centric focus with the view that the point of any change initiative is to enable organizations and individuals to be more effective. She has helped and trained individuals across all levels of the organization apply visual modelling techniques to scope and plan change initiatives. These techniques provide clear stakeholder value, support holistic risk management and motivate commitment and collaboration across executive, employees, and external partners.
The success of any enterprise change ultimately depends on people changing the way they do things.
Not only does Louise consult on change, she has lived it. Born in Scotland, she spent her childhood in Africa and south east Asia and as a teenager, immigrated with her family to Canada. She has worked for small and large organizations and experienced being outsourced first hand. In 1998 she and her partner founded SToS Consulting Inc in British Columbia, moving to the east coast of Canada in 2010.
In her spare time, Louise raises goats, which are very intelligent and habitual creatures. They notice the smallest change and react with both suspicion and curiosity simultaneously. Their dual reaction to change is an inspiration to step out of 'either/or' thinking and hold both curiosity and fear in tandem in our approach to change.
