Where We Come From and What We Bring to the Table


We’ve been around the block a few times, so what we have to offer is earned wisdom and practiced expertise. We bring context and perspective that’s come from living and working in a multitude of scenarios, sectors, and industries. Across Canada and beyond.


There’s no big brand to hide behind here. Compass is our business brand and our personal reputation. And we’re never willing to put that at risk. We’re excited to do great work for our clients because that leads to more great work and long-term relationships.

To us, that’s where the magic is!

“Our work with Ian and Compass in both strategic and operational planning has been such a positive experience for Children’s Centre Thunder Bay. Ian guided our organization through a review of our mission and values, the creation of a new strategic plan, and the development of our senior leadership priorities.


His ability to focus simultaneously on the mission- or the why, while maintaining a close eye on tactics- the how, is exemplary. And his engaging service-based style and wisdom together with his ability to produce a useful product are what make him an extraordinary partner in the work we do. We highly recommend Ian as an organizational teacher, facilitator, and guide.”
