Kyle Pearce - Founder and Principal of think:act consulting.
I have a professional journey that’s allowed me to pursue my passion for making the world a better place in community services, social enterprise and sustainability. After a 15-year career in community services, I started think:act consulting as a way to help organizations get access to an outside perspective who can quickly join and lead internal teams to achieve great things.
I am an experienced and effective speaker, lead designer and implementor for ground-breaking initiatives and organizational change processes, and have particular expertise in solving complex problems with inter-organizational collaborations.
Working with leaders and experts to formulate a practical direction for achieving ambitious goals, and a rationale that will be understood by everyone
Engaging dozens or hundreds of stakeholders in large-scale co-design that stays on track
Elegant solutions for successful prototypes, new strategic directions, and sustainable innovations
I am a recognized pioneer in designing and implementing lasting solutions that are based on deep listening and building effective relationships that cut through complexity. I integrate a wide range of perspectives and use visual tools to explore and then build convergent solutions from the ground up.
Academically, I studied political science with a focus on political economy in the developing world. My Masters in interdisciplinary studies at York University produced groundbreaking research on the links between whiteness, social identity formation, and the social and interpersonal codes that structure our daily experience.
think:act consulting has been assisting organizations to improve their performance, innovation and responsiveness since 2007. My goal is to improve the world for the benefit of future generations.
My central focus in life is being an “above average dad” to my two sons, and raising them to be confident, empathetic young men is my most important journey.
Living at the intersection of culture, systems and science.
Championing equity, sustainability and good governance.
I lead discussions for Next Gen Men, where we use a book club as a launching point into discussions about masculinity, expressiveness, and recognizing men’s opportunity to transform ourselves, break cycles, and become champions for equity.
I work with anti-racism and coaching groups where we explore the way that our inner dialogue about judgement (of self, others and circumstances) feeds racism. We discuss ways to interrupt the cycle within ourselves and other so we can become more effective advocates for equity, inclusion and ensuring that everyone feels a sense of belonging
I serve as VP for Community Integration with Inspire Resources Inc., a mining company that is developing business models for resource extraction that are owned by First Nations and whose purpose is to generate revenue for local sustainable development. We have built a global network of cutting-edge thinkers and companies pushing for a transformed industry
I am active in research on equity in sustainability, focusing on zero-emissions vehicles and home retrofits.
