More About Us

The Bonar Institute is a smaller scale boutique professional leadership firm which enables us to provide a highly tailored, nimble, intimate and high-touch approach to partnering in your success. We have two approaches: one for individual clients and the other for corporate clients. 

 In a world of endless change, we believe human and organization potential can be catalyzed with shared effort and professional consultation. We look forward to partnering with you in your success. Our value model is underpinned by providing you access to a multi-disciplinary team of experts and tools which applies the necessary science and art required to identify actionable insights. In short; we listen, assess, activate, and generate a roadmap for optimal performance. 

 Since our founding in 2014, we have partnered with diverse clients. A chief factor to our impact is we understand the specific needs and objectives of each client. Our company was created out of the desire of its founder and principal, Dr. James de Gaspé Bonar, to promote the highest standards of excellence in corporate leadership. The Bonar Institute is committed to assisting executives to see beyond the ordinary, to identify new possibilities and to embrace the extraordinary for themselves and the organizations that they lead. We offer a broad range of leading-edge programs that are customized to meet the unique needs of our clients. 

 The marketing name and logo marry our strong sense of tradition and the memory of great leaders past who have inspired humanity to always reach for somethings greater than themselves, while also adding a modern touch that honours the present and future.
