I went on a Friday, and Commons was looking very quiet, but that made the atmosphere comfortable and casual. Right away, Alyssa Tintinaglia, NABI’s Manager of Operations, introduced me to Ken Douglas. Ken is the Western Canadian Leader of R&D and Government Incentives at Grant Thornton. He is also one of several business coaches who volunteers weekly at Commons. Each week, he helps entrepreneurs at Commons with their questions about research and development grants, and other government incentives they might qualify for. He was interested in whether I had any experience with technical writing (I do), and we exchanged some information and conversation. As it turns out, he grew up very near to where I did. Small world!
