Bold Career Project

Choosing to work with Ian and his team at The Bold Career Project has been one of the best investments in my professional growth.

Their transformative approach equipped me with high-impact assets, insights, and strategies, empowering me to take full command of my career journey and unlock my professional potential.

Ian's work has profoundly reshaped my views on career success and personal achievement, excelling at identifying both strengths and areas for improvement and offering actionable solutions that have made a significant difference. My only regret is not partnering with Ian and his team sooner.

For any ambitious professional or executive, having the Bold Career team in your corner is as essential as a world-class coach is to an elite athlete.

Their coaching has given me a bold competitive edge. Why not give yourself the same advantage?

CEO, Quantum Industry Canada

Bold Career Project

I can't say enough positive things about Bold Career Project. Facing a transition into the demanding executive world, I felt overwhelmed and outdated.

Their team was incredibly knowledgeable, providing expert guidance tailored to my needs. From revamping my resume and LinkedIn profile to honing my interview skills, they gave me the tools and confidence to land my dream executive role.

Their professionalism, support, and genuine care for my success made all the difference. If you're looking to elevate your career, look no further!

Asst. GM

Bold Career Project

I had the pleasure of having Ian as my first ever career coach to proactively support me in preparing to be able to build my resume, understand strengths and make myself ready to look for new opportunities.

From a very high level, detailed career inventory (which was painful but so necessary), I was set up on the right path to understand what my strengths are, and what I want from my career and roles going forward.

I highly recommend any professional to invest in a coach and Bold Career Project is a great company to do that with.

Vice President, Client Services

Bold Career Project

"Ian is that rare combination of talent plus experience that makes someone exceptional at what they do.

His coaching has made my goal of shifting business sectors manageable by helping me create a strategic plan based on what he’s seen succeed in the past."

Entrepreneur in Residence - Texas

Bold Career Project

"The best career consultant in Vancouver! After 19 years with my company I decided that I needed to make a strategic career move.

I opted for the 'top of the line' service which included a series of online tools and training on resumes, job searching, networking, etc. After 3 months of working with Ian I landed my new assignment and have him to thank for helping me get there.”

Senior Insurance Leader - Vancouver, Canada

Bold Career Project

"He has coached me through my last two career transitions. Getting a professional coach was the best career decision I’ve ever made.”

VP of Sales, Switzerland

Bold Career Project

“I recently relocated to Vancouver and I was introduced to Ian to help prepare me for the Canadian job market.

In summary I was able to secure a great job really quickly once I arrived in Vancouver and I believe Ian played an invaluable role in making my job hunt such a success."

Senior Business Intelligence Analyst - Vancouver, Canada

Bold Career Project

“I had the pleasure of working with Ian as a client who was seeking a change in career. Ian's series of videos were simple to follow, and were done in short, manageable chunks that were informative and challenged me to think deeply about where I envisioned myself in my career.

I would wholeheartedly recommend him as a supportive coach and guide in the process of career growth and change.”

Director, Cluster Workforce Growth - Vancouver, Canada

Bold Career Project

“Searching for a job is tough, finding the right job is even more difficult. I knew that I couldn’t do that alone. After so much time with one employer, I wanted an edge. I wanted guidance finding new opportunities, preparing for interviews, and I had doubts about my marketability in a competitive industry.

Being able to have a personal and objective resource for all of the important questions and moments of self-doubt helped me stay focused. The experience of being coached by someone towards a very specific goal, which involved some difficult thinking on my part and a lot of patient probing on your part, was very positive. It got the job done. And it got me the job.”

Senior Sales Representative - Vancouver, Canada

Bold Career Project

“I had been pondering future options for my professional life. I was taking a passive approach, scanning for job postings, applying & interviewing for a few, and hoping that something would present itself that I would get excited about. I was waiting for a lightbulb moment.

I finally got the clarity that I was looking in the first couple of weeks of the program. From there, the recurring themes of self-awareness and unique experience(s) driving future direction provided a really strong framework for formulating an action plan that feels right to me. You have created a course that is logical, comprehensive, & inspiring.”

Bold Career Project

“I am an older professional . Who is now thinking about possible changes. I found the program a life changer. It provided, for me, new ways of thinking. One aha after another. It has helped me create refreshing ways to see my life and career journey.

The program is a comprehensive growth approach, to help professionals, establish where they are now, determine their career assets, and then intentionally and proactively move towards improved life and career options. It is strategic training for a lifetime of better bolder career choices. No matter what your vintage may be!”
