Quantitative and qualitative analysis

Chad has a well-rounded skill set that includes quantitative and qualitative abilities and experience in a wide variety of sectors. His background in public policy gives him a strong understanding of governance in the private and public sectors.

Chad applies his diverse skill set to a wide range of projects including economic impact analysis of the City of Victoria’s cultural workforce and a cultural plan for the City of Maple Ridge. He is particularly interested in energy policy and regulation, and in exploring different social indicators and proxies to measure social impacts.

Chad holds a Master’s in Public Policy and Global Affairs, where he focused on energy policy, green energy transition, and sustainable development policy in the Asia-Pacific. He recently presented a report titled “Canada-ASEAN Business Outlook: Opportunities for Canadian Business in the ASEAN Growth Story” at the 2016 Canada-ASEAN business forum.
