ABOUT

Thirty-Five Years of Leadership and Vision

 

Paul Knox

Consultant

I decided to leave organizational leadership positions, so I could focus on developing and helping implement creative projects that build a better community for all.  My career has led me on an exciting path taking my community organizing roots to work with organizations and communities in the areas of economic and workforce development, participatory leadership, strategic policy and system change formulation and advocacy.

I have specialized in social entrepreneurial activities that created:
