Ideation, government relations, blockchain
Mike Bannister is not your typical librarian. After completing his graduate work in Library and Information Science from the University of Western Ontario, Mike knew there was more to life than saying “shhhhhh” all day long. Instead, Mike now can’t stop talking about creating new ideas. Having won local and national hackathons along with being a member of the Board of Directors for Hacking Health, he’s your go-to idea generator keen on growing the ideation capacity in our health innovation ecosystem. Another area of Mike’s expertise is government relations. With a network spanning all levels, he can help you find the right dataset or government support to advance your idea. As a member of the Standards Council of Canada, Mike sits on several ISO committees for information management and has a keen interest in metadata along with blockchain.
