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 technology, education and social capital.
I have over 24+ years of private sector experience in various key business roles and spent a bunch of time in Asia.
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 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.
Currently focused on 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 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.
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.
More importantly, I challenge my students to be their authentic selves and to think 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.
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.

Be you. Be kind. Have fun.
