Robin Ford

About: 

From 2008, I have been capacity building and consulting in the areas of strategic planning, more effective decision making, governance, and regulation.

Since 1983, I have been involved with policy formulation, the drafting of legal instruments, and regulatory law, often working directly with supervisory teams.

I am an old hand at building and managing effective relationships and navigating complex political environments, working with business executives, senior civil servants, and Government Ministers, and with specialists of all sorts (including economists, engineers, accountants, and actuaries).

Working with the technical experts, I have managed and delivered complex projects such as a new interconnection regime for telecommunications and advanced requirements for capital adequacy in the insurance sector, often to very demanding time scales.  I understand the power of an outcomes focused and risk based approach and how to make it work in practice, in both small and large organizations.

I recently joined the Advisory Group to the National Crowdfunding and FinTech Assn of Canada.
