Grant Waldie has hundreds of multi-discipline projects under his belt. Starting as a Project Engineer and working his way up to Project Manager, he now works as a Project Management Analyst, whose job it is to continuously check budgets, schedules, and quality across the corporation. He also works as a Bridge Inspector, where he travels across North America, puts on rock-climbing gear, and climbs around bridges looking for defects.
Grant loves reading business books, magazines, and journals. When he isn’t immersed in the culture of Corporate America he enjoys climbing and adventure. He has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and safaried in Africa – experiences that have helped him see the boardroom and Corporate America’s struggles in a completely different light.
When he and his wife aren’t travelling the world, they relax from their home base in Denver, Colorado.
