Michelle Holliday is a writer, presenter, facilitator, and consultant whose work centers around ‘thrivability’ — a set of perspectives and practices based on an understanding of organizations and communities as dynamic, self-organizing living systems. On this basis, she supports pioneering, purpose-driven clients across a range of sectors. She also teaches about thrivability and regeneration in multiple contexts. Her research and practical experience are brought together in the highly acclaimed book, ‘The Age of Thrivability: Vital Perspectives and Practices for a Better World’. With a Master’s Degree in International Marketing and a Bachelor’s Degree in Russian Studies, she spent the first part of her career in brand strategy, working internationally for Coca-Cola and H.J. Heinz. The second part of her career focused on leadership and culture, consulting for a range of organizations in Washington, DC. After living in 19 cities, including Moscow, London, Paris, New York and a small town in Scotland, she now calls Montreal home.
