VP, Growth Markets, LifeSpeak Inc.
Paul Estey is currently the Vice President of Growth Markets for LifeSpeak, a leading global digital health and wellbeing platform. Paul’s mandate is to expand access to the company’s offerings outside of more traditional workplace settings, with a particular interest in serving students and schools, small businesses and the self-employed, and un/under-served and marginalized population segments and communities. Having personally experienced mental health challenges, Paul appreciates both the tremendous privilege and importance his own personal and professional relationships played in his journey. Blessed with a tremendous network of family, friends, colleagues and co-conspirators, he is acutely aware of the power of human connection as an essential ingredient of any well-functioning business, community, or society. Previously, Paul co-founded and led Public Inc., one of North America’s preeminent social impact agencies focused on equipping leading organizations to “profit with purpose”. He also led strategy and business development for global SaaS fundraising software leader FrontStream (formerly Artez Interactive) and began his career in strategy consulting with The Monitor Group (now Monitor Deloitte). Paul is a University of Waterloo Mathematics graduate, proud husband, dad and dog owner, foodie, traveler, diehard Raptors fan, long-suffering Bears fan, and serves as a strategic advisor to and investor in several growing social enterprises and nonprofits all working to drive positive change in society. He is also desperate to break free from the confines of his home office (bedroom) and rejoin the ‘real world’, which explains at least in part his affinity for all things GenWell.
