Dwayne is a people-focused operations professional who has worked for both multi-national and privately owned Canadian corporations in 5 different industries over the past 15 years.
Dwayne is a Chartered Professional Accountant who values authentic business relationships and clear communication.
He is constantly tracking and assessing sales, marketing, and financial tools in the interest of automating operations, so that entrepreneurs have more time to do what they love.
His "why" is to alleviate the stress and anxiety around managing money and keeping up with current technology.
Research published this year by Harvard and Stanford Business Schools suggests that health problems associated with job-related anxiety account for more deaths each year in the US than Alzheimer’s disease or diabetes. It is likely that the same is true in the UK.
The combination of the Amazon story and the recent study into the impact of work-related stress means that there are important questions that all organisations should ask themselves.
These include: What type of management culture do we foster? What informal conflict management techniques do we offer to foster healthy workplace relationships? What are we doing to enable people at work to enjoy their jobs and thrive, both psychologically and physically?
Scott teaches non-violent communication techniques that help managers live healthier productive lives.
