Co-Founder & Principal, MASS LBP
Peter MacLeod is the co-founder and principal of MASS LBP, an innovative firm based in Toronto which works with forward-thinking governments and corporations to deepen and improve public consultation and engagement. Since 2007, MASS has led some of Canada's most original and ambitious efforts to engage citizens in tackling tough policy options while pioneering the use of Civic Lotteries and Citizen Reference Panels on behalf of a wide array of clients.
Over the past ten years he has worked with leading organizations in North America and Europe, including Fast Company magazine, Vancouver's Wosk Centre for Dialogue, Britain's Demos think tank and the Kaospilots, a Danish school for business design and social innovation. A graduate of the University of Toronto and Queen's University, he writes and speaks frequently about the citizen's experience of the state, the importance of public imagination and the future of responsible government. He is an Action Canada fellow (2003), the 2008 recipient of the Public Policy Forum's Emerging Leaders Award, and a director of Toronto's Wellesley Institute for Urban Health. He is represented by the National Speaker's Bureau.
All Are Welcome.
