|We are on the cusp of a dramatic technological revolution that will disrupt our workplaces in a manner that our society has not experienced since our shift from an agrarian to an industrial economy. Led by such nascent technologies as self-driving cars, large-scale 3-D printing and artificial intelligence, this technological revolution will dramatically touch every industry, from trucking, construction and manufacturing to engineering, accounting and medicine.|
Are we ready for this change? If managed properly, this technological leap has the potential to make us wealthier, healthier and happier. However, it may also lead to wide-scale job destruction, dramatically increased inequality and a rapid spike in permanent unemployment.

Meet your instructor
David is an individualist. His nonconformist mindset and passion for transformation set him apart in a profession steeped (and sometimes mired) in tradition. Where others spot problems, David sees possibility and promise. He understands and appreciates not just the practice but the business of law. Add to all this his disarming wit, bellowing voice, and lofty stature, and there's no mistaking him in a crowd.
A trusted workplace advisor to both companies and individuals in BC's Interior, David was the ideal choice to break new ground with our Kelowna office. Firm in his belief that a successful business is not one based on "zero sum" relationships (where one person suffers so that the other may thrive), he looks forward to supporting Okanagan employers and employees in the practice of sustainable employment and to surrounding himself with like-minded clients.
A prolific and plain language legal writer, David is the founder of a thought-leading employment law blog that covers timely and novel topics in an accessible and engaging way. He is also a dedicated community contributor, with active memberships in an extensive network of local professional and philanthropic endeavours including Junior Chamber International (Kelowna), Pathways Abilities Society, Kelowna Community Resources and Chartered Professionals in Human Resources of BC & Yukon and executive positions on the Human Rights and Employment Law Sections of the Canadian Bar Association (BC).
