Chief Envisioner

Dan Pontefract is the author of Flat Army: Creating a Connected and Engaged Organization. He is also chief envisioner of TELUS Transformation Office, an organizational culture change consulting firm. Previously he led the leadership development, learning, and collaboration technology strategy at TELUS, where he introduced the TELUS Leadership Philosophy, an open and collaborative-based leadership framework for the more than 40,000 TELUS employees, in addition to a litany of social tools and the pervasive learning model. Engagement improved from 53 percent to 85 percent in six years. A renowned speaker and practicing futurist, Dan believes today’s organizations could be so much more if only leaders did something about employee engagement, shifting the culture toward a purposeful workplace.
