Jason Bradley has a multi-faceted career in technology, cattle ranching, and academia. This stems from early-career roles at Nortel Networks in senior manufacturing and project management positions, two decades as the Vice President of Operations at Red Deer River Ranches, and recently as the Director of Smart Ag and Manager of Strategic Partnerships at Olds College.
Being at the forefront of the design and implementation of the Olds College Smart Farm and Smart Ag Ecosystem, in itself, a bootstrap lean startup effort has provided Jason an opportunity to invest and expand his interest in agricultural innovation and co-creation design thinking. This experience has enabled his strategic relationships with ag-tech startups, established agricultural enterprises from SME’s to MNE’s, and with post-secondary institutions across Canada and around the globe.
Jason is currently working on his Master of Arts in Leadership at Trinity Western University and is researching how collaboration, team leadership, and people development are integral to transformational servant leadership and its values and ethics.
