About the Author
James T. (Tackaberry) McCay – ‘Jim’ to his friends – was a visionary and great business thinker.
McCay was an amazing man with a brilliant mind, gifted at connecting the dots and then communicating his insights as well as helping others to do the same thing for themselves.
James T. McCay was the Chairman of Integron Associates Incorporated of Montreal, co-ordinators of integrated development projects. He acted as counsel on organization growth and executive development to some forty Canadian and United States corporations.
Graduating from the University of British Columbia in 1943 with a degree in Chemical Engineering he went to the Persian Gulf to work on an oil refinery construction project. Returning to Canada he helped to found a company which manufactured and distributed heating equipment nationally. After that time, he practiced as a consultant to management on plant design, work analysis and process controls.

In 1953 McCay formed, with Dr. J. S. Bois, Bois, McCay and Associates (later becoming James McCay and Associates Ltd.) and developed a series of programs for executive training as well as leading numerous seminars on self-development and the management of time.
