Where the Passion Begins



Founder / Facilitator

 Alfred has been involved in business leadership for over 40 years. During this time, he has worked for both large and small companies in various capacities, and has honed his skills in dealing effectively with people, successfully merging the interests of production and safety




 Carey’s career as a manager of safety services began in April 2009. Since then, he has held progressively increasing responsibilities, as he has helped develop systems for businesses across USA and Canada. His personal interest in music has afforded Carey the opportunity to work and travel across many countries and equipped him to interact easily with people at all levels – a skill that is clearly evident in his business interactions.


Why are Core Values so Important?

Core values are those values that direct our lives. They are our “North Star” or our “Southern Cross” by which we navigate through life. Everything in our lives aligns according to our core values. It’s not something we need to think about. It just happens.

When we attempt to operate out of alignment with our own personal core values, there is conflict and dissonance in our lives. When we allow ourselves to realign with our core values harmony ensues, even when circumstances are against us.

Similarly, when we build relationships, business or personal, with others whose core values align with our own, the relationships have a healthy common ground in which to flourish.


We strive for excellence in all we do. We do not seek perfection, just the best version of ourselves that we can be. This has been a lifelong value for our family. Regardless of the mark our children would bring home from school, if it was their best, we were fine with it. But even a high score, if it was not their best, was not good enough.
