Tony Williams BSc MSc PhD,  Leadership and Organization Development Consultant

Tony Williams has been a leader under a variety of conditions from music to medicine to money. He learned about leadership starting in the music industry where he led bands and entertainment groups in Wales, Europe and Canada. In sports, he led rugby teams at the local, provincial and national levels. His organizational leadership began as one of the founding directors of the Justice Institute of BC. He helped its Paramedic Academy gain an international reputation through building Emergency Medical Systems in Canada, Asia, and the Middle East. Tony also exercised his leadership in the private sector, working as a Vice President for one of Canada’s largest credit unions. During a stint as visiting faculty at Royal Roads University he was able to lead in an academic setting as the academic lead in the Health and the Public Safety specialties of the MA in Leadership Studies. Today he consults on system and leader development in the private and public sector bringing his diverse leadership background to bear on 21st Century organizations. “I’m frustrated with the current state of leadership research and development, because even though we seem to be able to recognize leadership when it’s in front of us—and when it’s absent, our ability to develop leaders with any certainty is still largely hit and miss”.
