Gordon partners with clients to develop creative interventions for tackling complex organizational challenges. He begins by developing a detailed understanding of what leaders are wrestling with and works collaboratively to develop unique solutions for their organization and the worlds in which they operate. Gordon is also working towards his certification as a strengths-based coach.
Gordon graduated from McGill University and went on to complete a Master of Negotiation and Conflict Resolution. After working in mediation in the Boston court system and the United Nations Office of the ombudsman, he was introduced to collaborative facilitation. He spent several years with Capgemini and KPMG before joining Collective Next in 2011. During his time at CN, he has partnered with clients such as Alexion, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, BlackRock, BorgWarner, Mackenzie Investments, and Investment Planning Counsel. He lives in downtown Toronto with his family.
Gordon is a very keen—and (hopefully) improving—tennis player. He serves on the board of Developing Scholars, a charity that provides financial aid to a network of community-based primary schools to provide free education for children in rural communities in Guatemala.
