Bobbie o’connor

director of development & communications

Laughter, creativity, teamwork, intensity, and intentionality are trademarks in Bobbie’s life. His passion for community development and lifelong learning have manifested in a 15 year marriage with the charitable sector - specializing in development, sponsorship, cause-marketing, communications, capacity building and organizational leadership and governance.  

 Having worked in a range of organizations from national foundations to healthcare institutions, Bobbie finds the greatest fulfillment working with teams of enthusiastic, dedicated, driven individuals. His work has led him coast to coast in the U.S. and, more recently, to Canada. Although you might catch a southerner's slip of the tongue here and there, he and his wife consider themselves Canucks at heart.

 When he’s not collaborating and coordinating, Bobbie enjoys traveling, cooking, home-crafted liqueurs, and wrestling with his two one-hundred pound dogs. His greatest weaknesses are a wood-burning fire, a well produced podcast, his son’s laugh, and his wife’s smile.
