Why I do this
a depth and breadth of domestic and international experience
With over three decades of experience in Government, Industry, and Academia I connect dots across all sectors in domestic and international markets. My background in operations with the Government of Canada, specifically the Canadian Armed Forces, coupled with my time working to build a one-of-a-kind industry and internationally focused engineering program has afforded me the skills to generate ideas in building multidisciplinary and cross culture solutions to see value for all.
My Sweet Spot
I help organizations that are building new and innovative offerings, who want their products accepted by a broad audience but do not have the time or resources to tell their story in a compelling fashion. To help these organizations I will tap into my vast international cross sector contacts and use creativity and an optimistic approach coupled with drive, determination, and honed communication skills to tell their story and promote their offering. This is compelling and rewarding because operating in this Sweet Spot resonates with these passions of mine: helping others, seeing people and organizations be successful, connecting the dots, and seeing value for all

Al is the best example of a True, North, Strong, and Free Canadian Patriot that I have had the pleasure of meeting in my life. Allan Dale has and continues to dedicate his life to our nation in every way he is able. After a distinguished career in our military and retiring as a CO, did Al stop? Of course not! Allan chose to pass his experience on to the next generation by working with the students of the UPEI FSDE program. Al used his vast network and communication skills to help nurture the innovative new program to the thriving success it is today. He was instrumental in helping students work on real world projects for the Navy, CSA, and many more world wide. But, did Allan Dale rest on his laurels? Never, he saw that policies and red tape were getting in the way of real change so Al went into politics to try to push PEI forward. Then, to help pass his wisdom on to any who needed it Al started his own consulting firm so he is no longer limited by bureaucracy telling him who he can and cannot help. Allan is twice my age but has twice the energy and drive I think I ever will. I hope that one day I will be the man that Allan Dale is.

Allan is an energetic individual who is passionate to help others grow as individuals. I had the pleasure to meet Allan while studying at the Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering where he is the Director of Industry Partnerships. Through the work of Allan, I was able to complete many unique design projects with Industry Partners as well as travel to Nepal to work on a controller to better assist hydropower connections in rural areas of the country. These experiences I have gained would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication that he puts into his work every day.
