He was the founding director of the international exchange program and designed, developed, and implemented a successful strategy for its implementation. He visited, negotiated, and managed programs with universities in the Americas, Europe and Asia. While on research leave, he was a visiting scholar at the International Centre, University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri. He has given numerous presentations at international forums.

He has designed and delivered a nationally-broadcast series on the quality of work life for the CTV Television Network, consulted for the Government of Canada and developed seminars for the Swedish Institute of Management and the Handelshogskolan in Stockholm, Sweden.
