Hi There! I’m Christopher Doré
You can call me Chris.
Talking about myself....awkward...
I would describe myself as entrepreneurial, a minimalist, and a passionate educator, who focuses on contributing to the lives of others through my passion for coaching, technology, education and social capital.
I have over a whole bunch of years of private sector experience in various key business roles and spent a bunch of time in Asia, mostly in South Korea.
These days, when I am not teaching in the best Algonquin College program, Business Management and Entrepreneurship (BME) I am working on making the world a better place as Founder of Lead+Change, a leadership/coaching consultancy that focuses on positive change through authentic leadership.
I completed my Master’s of Entrepreneurship in 2019, from the Technology Innovation Management Master's Program at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.
I firmly believe you should never stop learning. A future educational goal is to complete a Phd in Leadership or Applied AI. Once my partner finishes her education.
Currently focused on Brazilian jiu-jitsu, developing leadership skills in myself and others, improving my coding ability, and learning more about applied artificial intelligence.
I like taking on projects that inspire me and that I believe will have an impact on people. That being said, I am currently working on a podcast and a book that I think will.
I spend my best time with my dynamic partner and my two amazing children.
Best described not as work but as my passion. I love what I do. Thank you, KR.
I find my purpose through creating. I love taking on projects and activities that have an impact or make things a bit better.
These days, I spend my creative energy on three specific initiatives.
A leadership coaching and consultancy agency Lead+Change
A podcast called "How to Change the World" launching soon.
A technology company, in stealth mode.
Teaching is in my blood and I often am grateful that I have this vocation. When I teach, my goal is not only to educate but to create better humans. I believe I make a difference in the world by teaching.
I get pumped teaching Entrepreneurship and Innovation as well as Emerging Technology for Business.
I enjoy challenging students to be better, and to think creatively as well as critically.
If you are interested in learning more about my work experience.
I keep a more detailed account on Linkedin.
If you have a great idea or a "good" business and are an awesome positive entrepreneurial person, I would love to meet you. Open to mentoring, business collaborations or friendship. Send me a message via contact.
The stuff that really, really matters.
Nothing matters more to me than my family.
This is all that matters to me. It is the meaning of my life. The other stuff is a bonus.
They make me a better person.
Without values you are a leaf in the wind, with, you are unbreakable. (By Me)
I believe everyone should know what they stand for.
During my time in Asia, I discovered the Bushido code.
These values speak to me.
I also believe....
Homophobia, sexism, racism, xenophobia, the patriarchy and toxic masculinity suck and that to make a better world you need to stand up against it. Be an ally
Key to life and success:
"Say what you mean, do what you say"
Fun Stuff About Me
Be you. Be kind. Have fun.
