This is an archived blog from when I ran Conscious Public Relations Inc. from 2008-2018. Excuse the potential outdated-ness!

Our new Advisor, Stephen Elliott-Buckley

One of the amazing things about our journey to B Corporation certification is acknowledging the need for external advisors. One of the areas we earned points in was forming a Board of Advisors. Since one of them left our board of three, I had been thinking about potential individuals who could fit that gap, and I’m proud to say that I have found him!

Stephen Elliott-Buckley is an Organizational Design Consultant, speaker, and business path consultant. He is also a professor of Labour Studies at Simon Fraser University, and consultant at Incipe Cooperative. We met at the Sustainable Vancouver Business Networking Meetup group two years ago, when I was on my journey toward earning B Corp for Conscious PR. LinkedIn was great in helping to stay connected with Stephen, even though I hadn’t seen him since that event.

Stephen generously gave more than his required time a few weeks ago to provide his perspective on what we’ve achieved and on the big vision I have for the next couple of months and years. Along with my other advisors in Michela Quilici and Kaare Long, I am so blessed to have received not only the wisdom and guidance of these individuals but also their support and assurance that I am on the right track. Advisors provide a unique perspective that Mastermind colleagues or mentors don’t, and for that I’m grateful.

You can find more information on Stephen’s business on his website or connect with him on LinkedIn.

Whether or not you’re pursuing B Corp, I highly recommend that you form a Board of Advisors of at least three individuals who have expertise in different areas. You’ll thank me for it!
