Shawn’s approach to solving problems is built on balance. As an engineering technologist, a professional planner, and IAP2-trained engagement professional, he understands that projects need a strong technical foundation and community support to succeed. With experience in planning projects from the high-level to the fine grained, he knows that thriving communities are built on plans that tend to the big picture and the smallest details equally. And as a passionate resident of Edmonton, he’s seen the community engagement process from both sides.
Shawn’s portfolio gives him the tools to help his clients execute community engagement the right way the first time. He’s worked with groups as big as 1,300 and as small as one in governing bodies, stakeholder selections, focus groups, and the general public. He’s a skilled facilitator and public speaker who often appears in the media and at conferences.
When he’s not in the office or volunteering the community, Shawn is usually riding his bike—rain, shine, or snowstorm.
