When he's not out meeting volunteers, prospective partners, and others interested in talking about TEDxCalgary, Jonathan Perkins works in the learning governance field with a large Calgary-based company. From November 2011 to October 2015 he was a member of the Calgary Police Commission, serving two terms.
Jonathan also is an alumnus of the Leadership Calgary class of 2003, and was a returning guide in 2004.
He has previously worked with the LeadWell Foundation/LeadWell Initiatve as Chief Operating Officer, with the Certified Management Accountants of Alberta as Vice President of Accreditation, with CentrePoint as a manager of consulting, and with the Parliamentary Centre in Ottawa as a coordinator of international parliamentary programs and an advisor to Canadian Parliamentary delegations.
Outside of the TEDx world, Jonathan is an avid student of history, politics, and technology. Once in a while, he can also be found wading the fly-fishing streams of Southern Alberta.
