Hi! I’m Sloan – business strategist, educator, passionate creator and cofounder. My current focus is sharing the best of business, personal growth and transformational resources with you through my digitally hosted courses, Art of Being Podcast, and my YouTube Channel.
One milestone to date I’m proud of, as the result of my client work & life experiences, I was awarded a TN-Visa in 2019. To formally bring you up to speed on the rest please do read onward.
With 15+ years experience as a management consultant and former capital markets pro, I bring macro picture expertise into each niche of execution I’m involved with. In a nutshell, I help businesses and professionals achieve strong financials and strengthen their client relationships.
My results oriented approach combines business analysis, brand strategy, content & direct response marketing, business development, and strategic communications.
As a consultant I have been engaged by start-ups to crystallize concepts and by early to mid-size businesses to identify and create efficiencies during phases of growth, transition or succession.
A former stockbroker and competitive dancer, I blend my history of wealth management, investor psychology, consumer behaviour, strategic communications and mind-body into all I do.
My experience spans working for and with Fortune 500 companies (starting with Baker Hughes Inc. at age 22), boutique investment firms, start-ups and entrepreneurs in both Canada & the USA. I am an investment pro and was a licensed Investment Advisor from 2007-2014 with my focus being private equity, portfolio management and equity trading. Industries of experience include finance, energy (resources), lifestyle (beauty, wellness) and influencer marketing. I am also co-founder of Groomer & George Organic Apothecary for Dogs, an organic luxury consumer products company focused on pet health and environmental sustainability. Chewy.com is USA distribution, Anipet Animal Supplies is Canadian distribution.
Academic accolades include: Master of Business Administration, Edinburgh Business School at Heriot-Watt University (August 2020); Diploma of Public Relations, University of Victoria (2012); licensure certifications from the Canadian Securities Institute (2007) and many notable marketing and emotional intelligence courses from various institutions studied from world class trainers (ongoing).
