Credentials

Paragon's principals have both participated in the DeGroote School of Business/Conference Board of Canada's "Director's College", which is a program leading to the designation of Chartered Director (C.Dir). This program is generally completed over the course of a year, and Tracey Lee Lorenson received her C. Dir. designation in February 2007. Further, Tracey's background as a lawyer ensures that all advice is given with regard to the legal and regulatory context in which the organization or project must operate.

Further, both of Paragon's principals have significant business experience, as well as experience facilitating planning and workshops for diverse groups.
