My process is simple and effective.  We work together as a team to identify where you want to be and then how you will get there.

This process includes strategic planning with the board and tactical planning with staff and/or committees.

DEB McCLELLAND

 

Over the years, Deb’s passion has been to assist boards in realizing their potential by travelling around the country teaching numerous workshops on the subject. 

 

Deb has served on many boards, including national and provincial boards, for over thirty-five years.  She also worked as Executive Director at the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce for nineteen years, supporting her board of directors as they transitioned to a solid governance model. Within all these experiences, she came to realize that governance, when done right, could be fun and easy.  That is why she has developed templates, examples and exercises for boards to follow so that they can easily adopt the various components of good governance!

 

Deb has been recognized as Executive of the Year and Chamber of the Year by her provincial network and Executive of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Canada. Most recently, she was appointed to the Council of Excellence by a panel of her peers across the country and appointed as Fellow of the BC Chamber of Commerce.

“I’ve attended several governance workshops, but yours is the best by far! I love your templates—they show us where to begin and it’s great to have that direction right from the start.”
