His latest book Becoming Contractor of the Year epitomizes this passion.

He has also written and delivers six Gold Seal programs for the Canadian Construction Association. He co-wrote and delivered a three-part Financial Management course for BCIT’s Construction Management Degree program.
Ronald has completed many inter-firm financial comparisons of groups of construction companies in both the USA and Canada and consulting to construction and manufacturing companies on a regular basis.
He is past chair (1992-1995) of the Board of Trustees of The Richmond Hospital ($65 Million budget), was vice chair of the Richmond Regional Health Board (1994-1996). He was a Special Ambassador to the 2010 Olympics, a Torch Bearer in Kelowna and inaugural chair of the Spirit of BC Richmond.
