Devon en quelques mots

Negotiation & Commercial Consultant with 15 years of experience with Forbes’ finest and small business alike. I've closed $5 billion of commercial contracts as a lead negotiator and I bring this experience to organizations that are focused on securing strong commercial results without sacrificing relationships.

I've helped teams across manufacturing, aerospace, legal, financial and consumer goods markets grow their revenue, expand their margins, increase operational efficiencies and cultivate strong relationships with partners throughout the value chain.

My global consultancy also includes work with small businesses and startups, and I contribute as mentor and advisor for programs including the HEC Paris Incubator at StationF and Startup Canada. My insights on negotiation have been featured in The New York Times, Glamour magazine and the Chicago Tribune.

A strong believer that negotiation benefits more than just the bottomline, I'm honoured to work with pro bono partners including The Clinton Foundation and UN Women to lead negotiation skills training for their teams and communities.
