John Aylen has been a teacher, writer, business person and entrepreneur. Some 15 years ago he was thrown unprepared into the marketing and communications business. He has seen some good times and some bad times, some of his own making, but has never lost his sense of humour, his ability to motivate people and imbue them with a zest for life that is definitely infectious. He was a founding editor of Ways magazine, a leading publication for CEOs. John Aylen lives in Montréal.
