His consulting practice focuses on helping organizations, large and small, to advance business and change management planning.
Mr. Bill Skinner's experience in transformational and organizational change, new product and services development, and performance measurement was gained over thirty-three years with the Public Service of Canada. He is currently active as a management consultant focused on strategic planning and project management, and volunteers with several organizations in the Ottawa Valley.
Both Mr. Brownlee and Mr. Skinner live in Renfrew County, while Dr. Barrados lives in Ottawa East.
"I look forward to working with Dr. Barrados, Mr. Brownlee and Mr. Skinner. Each one of them brings a unique perspective to an already remarkable Board.
