Operational systems risk and resilience planning

Alec works with clients to understand how change can affect their risk profiles and develop tailor-made strategies that help organisations achieve their objectives. He advises at national to municipal levels and for very large companies to start-ups.

He is an adjunct professor at the University of Toronto Centre for Resilience of Critical Infrastructure, where he focuses on operational resilience of communities and infrastructure systems. He speaks internationally on infrastructure risk and resilience, and is past chair of the BOMA Toronto climate change resilience committee.
