Dan Overall is Executive Director of the Trico Charitable Foundation.
Established in 2008, the Trico Charitable Foundation seeks to close gaps in society by provoking innovation and building capacity in social entrepreneurship, primarily in Canada. Prior to Trico, Dan was Vice President of Research, Workforce, and Strategy for Calgary Economic Development. Daniel’s work has been recognized by the Skoll Foundation where he is also a contributor.
Dan also served as Director of Policy and Communications for the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce (MCC). In that capacity, he was an early adopter of CSR, redesigned the MCC to focus on community values as much as entrepreneurial spirit, and oversaw the MCC’s participation in the anti-poverty campaigns ‘Raise the Rates’ and ‘Make Poverty History.’
