Pelecanus is dedicated to assisting organizations in the creation and assessment of their risk management, strategy development, and stakeholder management
processes. We bring strong expertise to these disciplines from vast
experience in these fields in Canada, the United States, and Europe.
Pelecanus is the Latin word for pelican. Seafaring birds have served as
guides to fishermen and sailors for centuries. As outlined in the Encyclopaedia Brittanica,
the pelican "often forages some distance offshore and habitually fishes
by plunging from the air". In the same way that pelicans show fishermen
where to avoid the risks of the sea and where the valuable schools of
fish lie, Pelecanus works with its clients to help them manage risk and,
in so doing, uncover the value in their business strategies.
