Hi, my name is Kevin Van Lierop. I am a community leader, adult educator, and engagement designer in London, Canada. My work focuses on designing strategies & platforms which create engaging experiences in support of helping others achieve their goals.

About

A goal to empower individuals and communities to take greater ownership over their futures has led to the most rewarding work I have completed. Approaching my work as a servant-leader, my expertise is in designing strategies and platforms which create engaging experiences in support of helping others achieve their goals.

Leading civic change in the community where I live, my role as Senior Community Fellow with Good City allows me to support citizens as they take greater ownership over the places they call home. Engaging, educating, and empowering citizens, I build upon their knowledge to harness the unused potential in communities.

As an educator, I offer expertise, guidance and support to students at Fanshawe College as they become better connected to their professional communities of choice. Through collaboration and the building of community partnerships, I am interested in exploring how experiences that bridge learning environments can be more meaningfully designed.

As the Director of Strategy & Engagement Design with Form & Foundry, my expertise is in knowledge translation and building bridges between digital & traditional spaces. Empowering clients to more meaningfully engage with their audiences, the strategies and platforms I design allow the organizations I serve to transform initiatives outside the scope of their current skillsets, knowledge or capacity.

In 2017 I invested the time necessary to explore how I can best focus my passions and expertise. Taking intentional actions to create more meaningful and lasting change in the communities I serve has helped me to form a foundation for the most rewarding and worthwhile life I have lived.

I am always looking to establish new collaborations & partnerships to engage more authentically with communities across sectors.
