McKinnon began his consulting business in 1992 after more than ten years working in and managing other people’s businesses. McKinnon has purposefully crafted his career to move both laterally and vertically through operational and managerial roles in a variety of industries in order to gain a broad perspective that allows him to see an organization in ways many people cannot. He has spent time in product development, service support and delivery, sales, marketing and strategic planning and facilitation of strategy.
