Hello! I’m Susan Gesner, the President of Gesner & Associates Environmental Learning. I started Gesner & Associates Environmental Learning (GAEL) in 1997 with a notion to integrate my unique blend of environmental knowledge, facilitation expertise and management skills. The projects that my colleagues and I undertake reflect my interest in the interface between learning and engagement, change management, facilitation and strategic planning.
I seek innovative ideas and I work to inspire bold, positive and environmentally wise actions. Indeed, I am dedicated help move Canada towards a sustainable future. My clients include government agencies such as Environment Canada and Climate Change, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, and the Town of Caledon. Non-government organization include the Albion Hills Community Farm, the Port Credit Salmon and Trout Association, and Forests Ontario.
GAEL has grown from a small business to one where I have colleagues involved in projects in each province and territory, in both official languages and with a variety of audiences. Each project brings about new partnerships with colleagues and other consultants who are striving to achieve the same thing – sustainability for ourselves and our planet.
If I had to categorize myself, I would say that am a facilitator, fly fisher, skier, runner and musician. My greatest skill? I listen.
