Our depth of experience and network of thought leaders

We have over 20 years experience exploring and developing approaches to responsible and responsive governance and public sector leadership in Canada and abroad. Our primary goal is to promote and share good practices, through research, advisory services and learning products. Learn more about our team.

A safe space for discussion and sharing of ideas

Our Executive Leadership Program, leadership boot camps, day courses, and custom courses are designed to be safe spaces for dialogue and sharing ideas. They are informed by our research and advisory services, and developed, tested and taught by former senior public servants. Learn more about learning opportunities at the IOG.

Our business driven and practical approach

We recognize the importance of connecting vision to strategy in a way that aligns internal service delivery with the evolving expectations of citizens. We bring both the first hand knowledge and passion required to improve the way public services are delivered to and accessed by citizens. Learn more about us.
