About

 

JP has inspired tens of thousands of students worldwide to identify the challenges they want to solve and figure out what they want to do when they grow up. JP holds a master’s degree in industrial organizational psychology from the university of Manchester and a degree of psychology from the university of Ottawa. His career has taken him from working in rural Africa for nonprofit organizations to consulting with multinational corporations in the us and across the world. Based in Canada now, he is the recipient of the 2017 outstanding career professional award in Canada.

There is more uncertainty among young people today, and it’s no wonder. The world is changing so rapidly that it’s harder than ever for them to envision the future and imagine their role in it. Many students are confused on how they answer the question, what they want to be when they grow up. Traditional career resources have failed young people by focusing on obsolete tests and job titles, instead of helping kids understand themselves what they enjoy and figure out how to navigate the modern world of work. JP is passionate about taking youth who feel hopeless, guiding them to understand who they are and what challenges they want to work on so they can thrive and reach their full
potential.
