A native Calgarian, Rebecca specializes in governance, strategic planning, and leadership development. She is sought after for her fresh and energetic facilitation style that is focused on co-creating solutions through high stakeholder engagement and capacity building. Rebecca has worked with dozens of Boards and Senior Leadership Teams in the private, family business (+ family office), not-for-profit, and public sectors across Canada. More specifically, Rebecca has worked extensively in the performing arts, family business/family office, agriculture, real estate, social enterprise/social purpose business, post-secondary, and social services.
An accomplished speaker and natural teacher, Rebecca has been invited as a guest lecturer for MBAs/EMBAs at the Drucker School of Management (Claremont, California) and the Haskayne School of Business (Calgary, Alberta). Committed to lifelong learning, Rebecca enrolled in the Institute of Corporate Directors —Directors Education Program — to receive the prestigious ICD.D credential. Although Rebecca was the youngest participant in her cohort, with her extensive background in Governance and Strategy, she thrived in the classroom.
Prior to joining the Calgary Phil, Rebecca was the Board Chair and Governance Committee Chair of Next Gen Men (NGM) for four years during which she built the organization’s governance structure from the ground up. Next Gen Men is a national non-profit that engages boys and men in conversations around gender and equity to work towards building a future where boys and men experience less pain and cause less harm.
In November 2023, Rebecca was appointed as Advisory Board Chair for Luniko Technologies, a start-up based in Calgary, Canada that specializes in helping businesses integrate artificial intelligence into their daily operations. Rebecca is passionate about the performing arts, particularly the Philharmonic, and how they play a pivotal part in Calgary’s future.
