As a graduate of Goodman's MBA Program specializing in Management and Strategy, I have experience helping organizations grow to reach their target objectives through best practices and innovative ideas! Currently I am leading Auxly Cannabis Group's (TSX:XLY) global talent strategy. Furthermore, I am honoured to have received the Beta Gamma Sigma accreditation for finishing within the top 10% of business students worldwide highlighting their academic excellence.
My unique approach to talent strategy includes a thorough combination of marketing and recruitment tactics. By utilizing these skills, I have successfully developed multiple employer brands, created exceptional awareness, and established brand equity within the labour market.
My performance today draws on the core strengths I’ve fostered since the beginning of my career; connection and communication, both internally with my team and externally with clients. Personally, I am candid, highly disciplined, organized and my integrity is principal. I believe one's ability to anticipate, learn and adapt to the lighting fast speed of change is everything.
Throughout my career, I found great joy in providing exceptional people with opportunities for advancement while contributing to organizations growth through human capital investments.

When I'm not working, I enjoy playing competitive soccer and I am a former OUA Varsity Athlete for Brock Soccer and Canadian Soccer League Player.
I love travelling! I participated in Exchange at the Stockholm School of Business and currently have travelled to over 26 countries. I believe these experiences travelling have allowed me to comprehensively understand global labour markets and various industries on a personal level.
Daulton Read, Partner of LinkedInGuru
As a recent graduate of George Brown College’s Post-Graduate Human Resources Management program, I have developed an acute understanding of each facet of Human Resources. From recruitment and selection, to training and development, to aligning the human resources strategy to the business strategy and many more areas, I posses a very extensive, yet detailed scope of Human Resources related knowledge.
I personally met Aaron during our studies at Brock University where I obtained an honours dual-degree BA in Labour Studies and Sociology. This degree gave me both an insight to the employer-centric area of employment, but also the sociological and human-centric aspect as well. With a particular enthusiasm towards the recruitment and staffing stream of Human Resources, I have efficiently been able to identify not only what particular skills and competencies clients currently posses, but also the best ways to express these skills to potential recruiters and agencies in order to keep them engaged and interested when reviewing applications.
I personally am a very driven, and dynamic individual who places an emphasis on relationship and team building practices no matter the scenario as the key to life is found through teamwork and surrounding yourself with those who push you to be the best version of yourself.
I personal highlight of mine is that I am the founder of an exciting and memorable annual charity golf tournament in Niagara-on-the-Lake called The People’s Cup, where all proceeds go towards improving the access to recreational sports for under privileged children in the Niagara and Greater Toronto Area.
Organizing, managing and executing this event has allowed me to give back using a passion towards one of my main hobbies, golf. During the summers on any given Saturday you can find me on the course, and during the winters you can most likely find me out with friends or playing hockey.
Aaron and myself hope that we can both help optimize your online digital reputation and application components to reflect a better you. There is no better investment than an investment in yourself, and your career.
