As a senior leader at World Vision, Chris demonstrated the remarkable combination of a strategic mind, creative thinking, and exceptional integrity–while also showing strong people skills and high emotional intelligence… Chris engaged deeply with our staff teams and ensured their voices were heard and insights shared. I highly recommend Chris as a leader, man of faith and strategic thinker.

"It has been a pleasure to partner with Chris as we worked to build the next five year strategic plan for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Chris led us through a very in depth process that enabled us to consult across our network and construct a plan that both builds on our nearly 40 year history and propels us into an inspiring and challenging future. Throughout the process Chris’s remarkable level of expertise, his professionalism, his deep relational empathy and his innate wisdom shone through and helped guide us to a great conclusion. He’s also an extremely nice guy. I cannot recommend him highly enough."

Kelowna’s Gospel Mission was in need of someone who understood our culture and values, someone who spoke our language, to help us discover and articulate a vision for the future and build a strategy to see it through. Chris was the perfect fit for us. We are thrilled with the end product but also with the process Chris led us through. His gentle guidance led us through complex waters safe to the other side, united as a team under one vision.

Principal - John Knox Christian School

"When entrusting your organization to a person who is going to lead you to a better place through a series of planning and thought sessions, you want that person to have integrity, organization, clarity, connection, vision, collaboration, and interpersonal skills. Chris Bosch checks all of those boxes. As a result of his work with us, our school has developed clarity, alignment, vision, and growth. Your organization would do well to engage the services of Chris. He comes with my highest recommendation."


Jeff Neven

Chief Executive Officer - Indwell

"I would highly recommend utilizing the consultancy services of Chris Bosch for strategic planning.  Chris led our Board, staff, volunteers, tenants and stakeholders through the work of creating and implementing our current Strategic Plan.  It started with carefully listening about how we wished to structure the process.  He helped, encouraged and sometimes pushed us through the strategic planning process from idea to implementation.   It is a good plan and more importantly, we have incredible buy-in to implement the plan."
