Patti BlackstaffeCEO, Digital Leader AdvisorGlobalSway

Patti is CEO of GlobalSway, a division of the Strategic Sense Group of Companies. She is on a mission to ignite the fusion of technology and humanity as she consults within companies and trains digital leaders to prepare for 21st-century challenges. Her No-Baffling-Shenanigans approach transports organizations away from outdated leadership practices and organizational structures no longer serving a new digital business environment. A former corporate director of real-time integration within the global Energy sector, she identified gaps in implementing technology-driven enterprise initiatives. To fill those gaps, she launched her own business in 2008, where she has focused on leadership, change, and transformation for some of the largest companies in Canada. Patti is highlighted in an article for Success Magazine on Leading Change, is globally recognized as a thought leader in the technology space, and sits on the Industry Advisory Council (IAC) for the Business Technology Management and Analytics (BTMA) program at the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary. Listed alongside many of her mentors as one of HDI’s Top 25 Thought Leaders for 2021 has been one of her highlights. She has recently completed co-hosting 51 episodes of a live-streamed learning initiative throughout 2020/2021. Her first book, a small leadership guide, was published last year, and her latest book, Hacking YOU: A Digital Leader’s Guide to Self-Awareness, will be published in September 2021.
