NEXT has worked with the leadership teams of for profit and not-for-profit organizations who wish to make the leap to the next growth curve since 1994. We have helped grow businesses and achieve the dreams of their shareholders.

To make the leap, NEXT focuses its services on strategic planning, leadership development, and ensuring the proper capital is in place to facilitate growth.

It takes vision, focus and discipline to achieve success. NEXT guides clients down a path of discovery, so they have clarity when it comes to their target customer, the value proposition, and how they choose to compete.

Clients have ranged from closely held, high-growth, mid-market firms to multi-national corporations, to not-for-profits, and to non-governmental organizations (“NGO”), who wish to foster an entrepreneurial culture in their organizations.

NEXT has consulted across various industries, including higher education, high-performance sport, retail, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, medical devices, distribution, high tech and professional services, both in Canada and the United States. The common thread across all clients is a desire to be a leader in their field.
