Al Compton, EMBA 2018 Congratulations to Al Compton, EMBA 2018, on his new role as Strategy Consultant for ThermalFrost Intl. Inc.

As I commenced the Telfer Executive MBA from 18 years in government, I was fascinated to learn the high percentage of Telfer graduates experienced complete career transformations. However, I was in disbelief that my personal career path would deviate from the one I had known nearly half of my life.

During the sixth of the Signature Series Consulting projects, I was transformed. I realized I was a strategic consultant for a dynamic Canadian alternative energy company in Vietnam. Six months later, I now fulfill the role as Strategy Consultant for this company, identifying and assessing international market expansion opportunities and reporting directly to the CEO. The varied array of qualitative and quantitative skills I learned and practiced during the Telfer Executive MBA unquestionably enabled my transition to private consulting.

The program is, indeed, a transformational process.

Al is transitioning from 18 years as a Naval Officer in the Department of National Defence. Al had been on active duty since 1997.
