Will Dawson, MBA


Will joined the Pivot team in 2021 after completing his MBA at Dalhousie University in 2020. He interned with Stantec in Calgary, where he spent 8 months analysing Indigenous relations and strategy. Before that, he graduated First Class Honours in Philosophy from the University of King’s College. Over eight years of competing in progressive levels of Canadian Parliamentary debate, Will developed a wide portfolio of skills relating to policy analysis, research, and verbal and written reasoning. He was also Dalhousie’s MBA Director of Case Competitions—running competitions, developing a program-wide engagement strategy, and competing in them frequently himself. Passionate about complexity, analysis, and public affairs, Will brings depth of discussion, integrity, and a flair for presentation with everything he does. He is excited to bring that passion to the Pivot team and their clients and to work hard towards achieving excellent results.
