Ted began his career over 20 years ago becoming an executive with Xerox and IBM. He discovered his passion for entrepreneurship when he acquired an unprofitable and dysfunctional distribution company and transformed it into a profitable and healthy business. Today he helps entrepreneurs as a speaker, Certified EOS Implementer™, and as the Community Leader for EOS Worldwide.
Along his entrepreneurial journey, Ted has started and successfully led five companies including an educational software business that was the first in North America to connect K-12 classrooms to homes over the internet, a video game game company in partnership with The National Hockey League, and a medical isotope firm with a purpose to ensure constant quality and a consistent supply of medical isotopes to the world.
Ted was introduced to the Entrepreneurial Operating System through his membership in The Entrepreneur’s Organization and began using EOS in his companies. He has first-hand experience in the benefits of running a business with EOS and the challenges of running one without it. In addition to being a Certified EOS Implementer, Ted serves as Community Leader for EOS Worldwide where he trains new EOS Implementers and facilitates Quarterly meetings for Certified and Professional EOS Implementers from around the world.
Ted splits his time between Edmonton and San Diego with his wife Jennifer, and two children, Spencer and Kirsten.
I had been self-implementing EOS for over a year, and despite the large effort I put into it, my team continued to struggle. I found that leading and facilitating created a difficulty where I wouldn’t get full participation from my team. I reached out to Ted to see if he could help me and we haven’t looked back. He has a ton of entrepreneurial experience and a leadership charisma that helps him command and steer through even the most uncomfortable conversations. He has become a great partner.
I was introduced to Ted from a fellow business associate after having met several EOS Implementers. I was immediately comfortable with Ted’s demeanor and after speaking with my team we moved forward with Ted. We were so pleasantly surprised with Ted’s knowledge and understanding of business and how he was able to bring his own experience into the room while still allowing us to find our way on our own. I would refer Ted’s services to any business looking to gain better control of their company.
