Jesse Clarke

I help organizations increase funding and influence with governments. In order to succeed, companies, non-profit organizations and community organizations need to have a strong relationship with governments. Organizations can greatly expand their impact and effectiveness through partnering with government to receive funding, manage programs or provide key insight and input into policy. I help organizations understand what they have to offer to governments, and how to build a strong brand with government funders.
I am a skilled facilitator and experienced strategic planner. I have a very strong track record of raising government funding for organizations. I am bilingual in English and French. I have achieved great results with municipal, provincial and federal governments, as well as international organizations. 
I am a high achiever, I thrive in dynamic environments and I lead with empathy, compassion and creativity. I am a lifelong human rights  and gender equality activist,  living in Toronto with my wife, teen daughters and many pets!
