Justin Yaassoub

Justin is a lifelong student of leadership who is fascinated with the notion of what makes people respond and react to other human ideas, suggestions, and commands. He is the director of All Around Consulting - providing leadership and team development guidance to small businesses and emerging leaders. 

After graduating from MacEwan University with a B.A in Political Science, Justin worked as a Public Affairs Officer writing communication strategies and speeches for the Government of Alberta.

He deployed to multiple regions including North Africa, the Middle East and Caribbean. 

Justin was awarded the Bravery Medal by the Governor General for his actions during an international operation. He was also awarded a Commanders and two Task Force Commanders Citations for his team work and leadership during his operations.
