Tim Tim Merry of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia is a Change Leader who works locally  and    internationally to support change in communities, organizations and  society. Participatory    engagement, stategic clarity and collaborative action are  at the core of his practice.  His work  is in direct response to the reality of the  world we live in.  "I design, deliver and train  processes  that are tailor made to  meet the needs of all the people involved.  The complexity  of the  challenges  we face, the speed of change and the uncertainty of our times demand we  see a  bigger picture that non of could see alone.  We must work together to intelligently plan  and effectively execute actions that have far reaching impact."
