Our team engaged Wes in search of team building and planning facilitating. He took that vague and seemingly impossible challenge on and ran full speed ahead with it. The group all met offsite for a day at a beautiful facility and worked together to: define the team, what success looks like, and outline commitment required from each individual to contribute to it. The instructor mixed in immediately with the team; he professionally and tactfully lead us through numerous thought provoking discussions. It was evident many lightbulbs shone brighter that day. In fact, the group unanimously agreed they would like similar sessions in the very near future. Often, concepts are lost following training sessions, but not in this case. Wes and the instructor followed up to ensure the group was able to understand and put what they learned into practice. They were just as committed to continued momentum and success, as the team! The experience was invaluable. We more than got our money worth and are already looking forward to future learning opportunities with Wes.

Wesley has now provided several months of consulting regarding Marketing and Business Development for Cela. And with those sessions, Wesley made it very engaging, interactive, and fun to work on ideas that can easily come across to people from varied backgrounds. Furthermore, Wesley connected with Cela founders in a multifaceted way allowing us to express our thoughts more freely in a way we wish to grow Cela. He is amazing with both communication and all the wisdom he had to share, I highly recommend Wesley with regards to his consulting firm and also engaging with him at a personal level as there are so many things to learn/explore with him.

Wes showed his unique blend of hard and soft skills throughout our consultancy engagement. He is able to flow in and out of big picture thinking fluidly and was able to guide discussions to productive resolutions without being forceful or shortcutting the creative process. I was consistently impressed with his ability to grasp central themes to broad concepts I was working through. He also has a wealth of knowledge of the local and national ecosystems of business and government. Our cycle concluded and my group is now focused with clear, sequential objectives that we are excited about.

I recently began working with Wes as a part of a team pursuing a big-picture project funded by the NRC IRAP MAS program. Through his facilitation, he was able to guide the discussions between our highly technical group to draw out the fundamental concepts and vision. What originally started as a moonshot idea is now feeling tangible and achievable through a roadmap that Wes has helped us develop. The project will still require many months and years of dedicated work, but it's certainly less overwhelming with this clarified process. What I appreciate most about Wes - his intent listening, respectful communication, curiosity, and ability to distill clearer themes from convoluted concepts.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Wes on a couple high profile projects. His ability to navigate client expectations and managing issues is simply amazing. Wes is diligent, focused and a prolific problem solver. Wes has the unique ability to identify rare opportunities and see business value areas which others can’t fathom.

In your practice with Sedona North and Paterson Consulting, it is clear that you have built a unique approach to management consulting. To be known as both a practical and insightful consultant comes from a track record of successful engagements. It was with an open mind to knowledge sharing with our audience and members that you helped prepare the episode on the Power of Meeting in Circles. With your colleague, David Restoule, you provided insight and wisdom on how to learn from indigenous culture, and apply the values of that learning experience into lessons that can be shared, taught and re-adapted for management consulting approaches to finding business solutions.
Craig MackayHost, What's Up Wednesday, CMC-Ontario, Past President, Institute of Certified Management Consultants of Ontario (ICMCO) website
Wes listened to the team's needs and objectives and matched us with a wonderful facilitator that understood the team's existing state and challenges. Wes and the facilitator worked with the team to provide tools and resources to better understand each other's communication styles, define & document how we want to work as a team, and build a strong foundation of trust. Change occurs in small ways over a period of time - the team worked with Wes in multiple sessions which included reflection on where we started and how far we have come. Taking time to celebrate successes within a team that is primarily task and deadline oriented has helped support a strong, cohesive team and has improved the team culture and environment. The time spent with Wes has been valuable in moving towards a high performing team. I would definitely recommend Wes to any team, whether a newly formed team that is trying to establish trust, or an existing team that is looking for new ways to support cohesion, collaboration and a positive culture. Regardless of your team's needs, Wes can help!

Wesley is a fantastic mentor, coach, and consultant professionally and personally. Through IRAP, We joined the CMC program summer of 2022 and luckily connected with Wesley for marketing-oriented training. After collecting sufficient information about CELA and its founders, Wesley scheduled the training plan immediately before we even started the first session. He was always encouraging, supporting and motivating us to discuss, think and practice. He inspires us to be creative and critical simultaneously and always comes up with great examples to elaborate his points. Wesley is responsive to any requests and questions we had and promptly provides us with solutions or suggestions which brought us add-on values. Lastly, his excellent communication skill made our class fun and efficient. I highly recommend Wesley if any start-ups or SMEs are looking for consultants on marketing/sales and leadership training.
