Ron Finlay graduated from the University of Waterloo in 1980 with a B.A.Sc. degree in electrical (and acoustic) engineering.
In 1981 he began his DJ business, supported by 5 years as a ballroom and latin dance teacher, a large record collection and a desire to entertain people with music.
In 1984 while building his DJ business, Ron applied engineering principles to the systematization of business processes using a technique he calls The Matrix Process and, with business partner, Dennis Hampson, co-wrote 15 books for DJs using this philosophy.
Ron’s 35 years working concurrently in large corporate engineering companies brought big picture thinking and HR experience dealing with a wide variety of clients, contractors, corporate structures and reporting levels (aka politics).
His accomplishments include 18 years designing many automotive switches, two US patents, one of which was presented in person by Magna International’s founder Frank Stronach followed by the development a switch design, using the Matrix Process that netted a sale of $60M.
Today, Ron’s other company, Matrix Business Training Workshops, shares the value of his life’s experience in business information systems and processes with a series of high value, 1/2 and 2 day workshops for small business owners, the flagship of which he calls The Matrix Unleashed. Ron wants to leave a legacy that helps other small business owners manage all the “stuff”, that too often overwhelms the “thing” they love to do most.
All of this experience combines to guide all the decisions Ron makes and the advice he offers is experientially based and backed by real world application.
Ron remains committed to the wedding industry, adding wedding officiant to his list of skillful services, for end to end impact for love and joy for his clients to begin a beautiful life.
