Michelle Holliday is a consultant, facilitator, author and researcher. Her work centers around a view of communities and organizations (including farms!) as dynamic living systems – much like the living soil. With this understanding, we recognize that we can create the fertile conditions for life to thrive at every level – for individuals, for organizations as living ecosystems, for customers, community and biosphere. To that end, Michelle brings people together and helps them discover ways they can feel more alive, connect more meaningfully with each other, and serve life more powerfully and effectively through their collective action. In other words, she invites people into the informed intention and practice of stewarding life. In her view, nothing could be more important. Michelle is the author of the highly acclaimed book, The Age of Thrivability: Vital Perspectives and Practices for a Better World. After living in 19 cities, including Moscow, London, Paris, New York and a small town in Scotland, she now calls Montréal home.
