A Passion Capitalist is an organization that has achieved long term success by creating Passion Capital; the energy, intensity, and sustainability needed to generate superior results. It’s what enables small start-ups to compete with large multinationals, and large multinationals to stay relevant over time. Passion Capitalists are guided by a strong set of values and beliefs that form the basis of a distinctive culture that fuels their performance. They are courageous; often having to overcome significant obstacles. They build strong brands anchored by their culture, which guide their strategies, the people they hire and promote, and the way they operate.

In 2011, during the process of writing a book called “Passion Capital”, Paul Alofs, President and CEO at the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, gave a small group of business leaders a preliminary copy of the manuscript and asked for feedback. David Shaw, the Founder and CEO of Knightsbridge Human Capital Solutions, was one of them. The concept of Passion Capital and the ideas contained in the book resonated with David. Many of the principles outlined in the book, such as the importance of establishing a values-based culture and selecting and developing people aligned to that culture, are principles that Knightsbridge was not only founded on, but also helps its clients achieve.
Inspired by the book, in 2012 Knightsbridge offered to champion the development of a national awards program to recognize and celebrate great Canadian organizations that have achieved sustainable success by creating “Passion Capital” among their people. The program also reinforced Knightsbridge’s brand promise and the work we do to help strengthen people and organizations, so that they become Passion Capitalists. To help bring the program to life, Knightsbridge partnered with Global Governance Advisors, Business News Network (BNN), and The National Post.
The inaugural year was a resounding success, with over 80 applications received from all across Canada, which is a testament to how many Canadian organizations have Passion Capital and understand its importance. Receptions were held across Canada to announce and recognize 28 regional Finalists, which assisted them in building their brand profile and provided an opportunity to network with nominee’s senior management and other business leaders. From this pool, the National Judging Panel chose 10 Winners, who were announced live on BNN by Paul Alofs and David Shaw. For a complete list of last year’s winners, please click here.
