There is a theme of humanism throughout Dwight’s work; in addition to philanthropic work with various organizations, he devoted many years of his career to the Red Cross, fulfilling a variety of roles and helping the society thrive with streamlined processes, reduced infrastructure, increased productivity, and enhanced services in Canada and around the world.

In 1995, Dwight took a position as Director for Revenue Generation with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, requiring that he work with National Societies from all over the world to develop and implement fundraising initiatives. During his time with the Federation, he worked to enhance relations between the Federation and multinational corporations, and instituted policies and procedures that facilitated effective fundraising, among other duties.

In 1999, Dwight began working with Capelle Associates. Here, he could apply the extensive experience he had amassed with global and multinational corporations to issues relating to organization design and efficiency. From assessing an organization’s current state to identifying areas of improvement to implementing effective change, Dwight helps companies, not-for-profits, and government agencies improve overall performance.

As Senior Vice President and Partner, Dwight assumed management duties and began working closely with Capelle’s president on growth and strategic direction of the firm.

Dwight remains an Associate of Capelle Associates and continues to provide organization design services to clients, but he has added yet another title: entrepreneur. He has recently established Effective Managers TM, a consultancy focused on increasing management effectiveness, primarily in North American and European organizations. Through Effective Managers TM, Dwight provides management consulting to organizations that want to both increase the productivity and effectiveness of their executives and better utilize their managers’ expertise.

Dwight earned an MBA from the University of Ottawa, where he also recently served as the Director of the Dean’s Advisory Board at the Telfer School of Management and Director of the Advisory Board for the Centre for Global and Community Engagement. In 2013, Dwight was inducted as an Honorary Member of Beta Gamma Sigma by the Telfer School of Management, the highest honour a business student can receive through an AACSB accredited university.
