Mike Klassen Consulting / BEAM Exchange
Consultant / Market Systems Specialist
I am an independent consultant and a part-time member of the BEAM core team. I have been working in the field of market systems development since 2010. The majority of my field experience was as a consultant and team leader with EWB Canada, in Ghana and Uganda. For the past 6 years, I have been based in Canada but supporting organizations remotely. I have been working for BEAM for several years, and most recently have been involved in the development and roll out of the MSD Competency Framework. Outside of market systems, I am an active researcher in the field of Higher Education, currently a PhD Candidate working on a comparative study of engineering education in the UK, Singapore, Australia and South Africa for my thesis. I am curious about opportunities to connect these two sets of expertise, and open to learning about programs applying MSD principles in education - particularly post-secondary education (in TVET institutions and universities).
