Who’s Paul?

Where else did Paul gain his expertise?    Early in his career, Paul realized the quickest road to growing and learning was by forming alliances.  He formed a type of Mastermind Alliance group (from Napoleon Hill – Think and Grow Rich) with 4 other like-minded, ambitious people.  They were a banker, a lawyer/politician, a real estate agent, an accountant, and Paul – the sales engineer.  It was clear to Paul then, that you didn’t need to be fully immersed in someone’s business to help them be successful.  The group held each other accountable, while sharing their goals, and sharing the new ideas they were learning from books and people they were meeting.  There’s nothing quite like having someone you know and trust pushing you to succeed. Paul continued to learn from others through groups such as:  Board of Trade, Toastmasters, Junior Achievement, the local ASHRAE  chapter President (an HVAC industry organization) and in particular, The Alternative Board for 14 years.
Paul has brought many new products and idea to market   Paul’s previous company, HVAC Systems and Solutions Ltd., represented some of the largest, and most well-known HVAC manufacturers in North America, including YORK International, Carrier Corporation, and Johnson Controls Inc.  These companies would regularly release new products and ideas to the overall marketplace, and it was Paul’s company’s job to get those new products in the hands of the local engineers and contractors that were building those new buildings. In a marketplace that searched out new and more efficient products, putting together what would work in his marketplace, is what Paul’s company excelled at.  Some products were winners, and some were not.  Deciphering what drove the customers in his marketplace, and what they wanted was a constant undertaking. Paul was a co-founder of The Sewage SHARC (www.sharcenergy.com)  which now trades under the symbol SHRC on the CSE.  An HVAC product that takes heat from raw sewage, which otherwise would go down the drain, and provides heat back into the building it came from – or for the building next door.  The Sewage SHARC is now being sold throughout North America, the U.K., and Australia.
Paul’s background   Paul is a professional engineer who graduated from Electrical Engineering at Concordia University in Montreal.  Paul’s career started as a sales engineer working for Trane Company from 1986 – 1999. He was fortunate to work for great mentors at Trane Halifax, Paul and Joan Conrad for eight years. The lessons learned there would be invaluable for what it would take to run a business. Paul, Peter and Geoff were three ambitious friends in Halifax, each early in different careers as an engineer, banker and lawyer, who helped each other reach their goals, listening and reading the books that led to great personal development, (including joining Toastmasters and Board of Trade).  Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”  This was a perfect example of how important your friends are when you’re just getting your career started
