Laura Maynard Senior Project Manager

Over her decade plus with Learn­Sphere, Lau­ra has launched and led many of our flag­ship pro­grams such as Train­ing for the Non-Prof­it Sec­tor (TNPS), and Com­mer­cial­iza­tion Con­sult­ing & Men­tor­ing (CCM). Always keen for a new adven­ture and chal­lenge, she opened our Hal­i­fax office in 2015 as our base for explor­ing new oppor­tu­ni­ties in Atlantic Canada.

Draw­ing upon her exten­sive project man­age­ment and stake­hold­er engage­ment skills, Lau­ra has most recent­ly led our Sup­ply Chain 123 pro­gram which saw us take our learn­ing and devel­op­ment solu­tions to Que­bec and British Colum­bia for the first time.

She has a Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tion from St. Fran­cis Xavier Uni­ver­si­ty, with a joint-hon­ours in Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics. In her spare time Lau­ra enjoys giv­ing back to her local and glob­al com­mu­ni­ty by vol­un­teer­ing for the Run for the Cure, and UNICEF Canada.

Lau­ra enjoys build­ing com­mu­ni­ty and a sense of belong­ing. When not work­ing or vol­un­teer­ing you’ll find her at the curl­ing rink, sail­ing in the har­bour or out for a run with her hus­band James.

Lit­tle known fact about Laura:

Hav­ing grown up on a dairy farm in rur­al PEI, she could at one point give a cow a show-wor­thy hair­cut. Just don’t ask her to repli­cate those results on a non-bovine form.
