John Hennessy - Candidate

I currently operate Hennessy & Associates here in Ottawa, an independent business consultancy serving mainly the firms in the telecommunications industry-- wireless, VoIP, m-commerce, data services and messaging markets. We provide such services as strategic advice to executive teams, market analyis, assessment, and segmentation, identification of key strategic business partners and alliances, etc. We have worked with such firms as Microcell i5 (in Montreal) and BitFlash (in Ottawa). I previously worked with firms like 8x8 Inc (Santa Clara, California), U-Force Inc (Montreal), Sanga International Inc, (U.S., Canada, New Zealand, British Virgin Islands), Accenture-Andersen Consulting (Chicago and Ottawa), Siemens:AG & Nixdorf (Ottawa), IBM: ISM/Westbridge (Ottawa), Gould Computer Corp (Florida), and Secure Technologies Inc (Ottawa).

I have nearly 20 years of experience covering operations and management, sales, and marketing and media. I believe my formal training and experience in such areas as major/large account management, client-partner development methodologies equip me to be a productive member of the NCF Board of Directors.
