Speaker: Mr. Lee Sentes

How To Grow Great Organizations

Venue: theDock

For VMBC’s October mixer our guest speaker will talk about how to use organizational development and design thinking to grow a successful organization.

Lee Sentes works with organizations to strategize, take advantage of change, and prove impact. Lee has worked with and alongside hundreds of non-government organizations in a variety of contexts, living and working in seven countries since 1996. Much of his work has focused on international development NGOs, either as staff, or in partnership in developing countries.

Lee helped found Development Action in New Zealand in 2010 and moved the company to Canada in 2012. His work within Development Action has been varied, including conducting program evaluations, providing monitoring and evaluation advice to government Ministries, and facilitating many planning sessions. Lee has advised on dozens of funding applications and community development projects taking place around the world.

His other work hats include acting as Associate Faculty at Royal Roads University, teaching a range of subjects from cross cultural communication to organizational development in a variety of programs both online and in person. Lee also trains UNHCR staff Operational Data Management through the Commonwealth of Learning. For fun, Lee volunteers with NetSquared Victoria, BCspeaks, and Doing Good For Nothing. Lee is also a part owner of theDock, a co-working space for social purpose organizations in Victoria.
