Adam (he/him) has achieved formal and informal training on three continents and shares a special passion for business/economic development and the sustainable economic independence and social well-being of Indigenous groups. Armed with insatiable curiosity, his passion for business comes from a competitive spirit that evolved from an early age. The tangible and intangible wins in business and teams fuels his fire. A mixture of creativity, systems/process creation and synthetic imaginative resourcefulness is how results happen.
The eternal balance between the old school hustle of practical application and understanding people, paired with a formal education consisting of a major in Managerial Economics (Hons), a master’s in Global Management, a master’s in Business Administration, a designation in Project Management and an Indigenous Studies certification, has enabled Adam to apply these many tools with real world experience.
His thesis and NGO focus in PTSD- “Establishing the feasibility of utilizing an NGO as a delivery model for mental health in a developing nation” has been a personal passion, stemmed largely from his past work as volunteer firefighter in Washington state, and volunteer work at the DropIn Centre Shelter in Calgary, Alberta
Trust and collaboration with others is everything, and trust in Adam’s eyes involves four key ingredients; integrity, intentions, capabilities, and results. A daily challenge to him is to consistently seek to give more value than offered in return, and create a listening and learning model to every experience.
Relationships did not always come easy when young, and through a continuous journey of personal development and extreme gratitude he has dedicated his life to serving and connecting with others offering his gifts to help others succeed.
Back to his hometown for a few years now, Adam is looking forward to immersing himself further into the community, and looks forward to many years with the growing PCFSA family.
