"Complex issues require skilled communication. In denying complexity we sacrifice understanding, and often see issues reduced to 'sides' framed as irreconcilable differences. Great communication lies in embracing complexity, and finding simplicity on the other side."
Kim brings more than 20 years of professional experience gained across corporate, public, educational, and non-profit sectors. This includes a strong background in strategic and communication planning for clients ranging from Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue to federal political contenders.
In a senior management role with London Drugs reporting to the executive, Kim was the liaison between technical experts and the C-suite, using effective communication to facilitate understanding and contribute to innovation in the organization during a time of rapid change.
