Brady Josephson, 30

Client Strategist, Chimp Technologies
Vancouver, BC

A top nonprofit consultant in Canada, Brady works to create campaigns and initiatives that help make charitable giving a part of everyday life. Chimp Technologies is trying to do some big, innovative things, he says. “If we succeed it will not only cause some serious and needed shifts within the charitable space, but we will be helping to grow a more intentional, effective, and efficient philanthropic culture in Canada—and hopefully the world.”

Charity and the church are much different today than they were even ten years ago, he says. “That will continue to change, so we need strong, solid, creative leaders to help guide us. The risk is that charity and the church will become less relevant to society. Absent quality leaders, that could very well happen, but it would be a huge detriment to us all.”

Brady is also an avid blogger at and has written for Huffington Post.
