A Certified Management Consultant, Chris holds a BA in Economics, and an MBA from the Rotman School of Management.
Bob McCulloch, MBA, FCMC, CEC
Bob McCulloch is a strategic advisor and executive coach. Over the past 35 years, his clients have been private sector companies in a wide array of industries as well as municipal, provincial, and federal levels in the public sector and several not-for-profit organizations.
Bob’s primary focus is on the leaders of the organization, both individually and collectively. He brings to the table the ability to facilitate diverse personalities, to synthesize disparate ideas generated in these facilitated sessions, and build consensus and commitment around the resulting powerful themes. The nature of the “business” doesn’t really matter – the strategic concepts are largely the same and related more to the nature of the human psyche.
Bob holds a BSc from the University of Toronto, an MBA from the University of Western Ontario, and a Certificate in Executive Coaching (CEC) from Royal Roads University. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Certified Management Consultants of Ontario (icmco).
