Executive Leadership Program - Vancouver Class 02

Kristy O’Leary
Prospector and Vision Broker
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Vancouver


Wanting to make a difference in the world, I studied politics. Wanting to contextualize the world for others, I studied art. In 2013 I founded Scout & Burrow, a market expansion firm specializing in growing ethical corporations. Scout & Burrow helps organizations lead change by assessing their value across the capital spectrum, crafting dynamic corporate social responsibility initiatives, communicating social benefits and expanding markets.

I am passionate about Art, Music, Politics and people's movements. I was the first recipient of the NSCAD University/Lunenburg studios residency, where I developed an online archive of centenarians’ observations of climate change and rural life in Nova Scotia.


I am a graduate of Carleton University, NSCAD University. I hold degrees in Media Arts and Political Science. I recently graduated from the Pond Deshpande Centre’s B4Change Social Enterprise Accelerator Program. I am a master connector, introducing ideas and people, and people to ideas, to create positive social change. Scout & Burrow are proudly the first female led B Corp in the Maritimes.
