Education Consultant, Deloitte, IZL Instructor & Coach
Dr. Bob Caron spends his days consulting top universities and higher education systems throughout the United States on their most pressing challenges. Before working for Deloitte Consulting, he was an academic dean in a small New England college, and he was an Assistant Professor and Researcher in the field of Human Movement and Rehabilitation Sciences before that. In parallel with these myriad career changes, Bob has trained in Zen meditation and Aikido since he was 17 years old and taught these disciplines for many years as the Chief Instructor of a world-class dojo that he adopted after his first teacher passed away. Bob is a long-time Zen student of Ginny Whitelaw, Roshi, and a board member at the Institute for Zen Leadership. He has three school-aged children and is a partner in his wife’s holistic medical center, called Body Therapeutics in Worcester, Massachusetts. He lives among the woods in a rural town about 30 miles west of Boston and enjoys working his land, climbing mountains in the summer, snowboarding in the winter, sharing time with his wife and kids and guiding people in their transformative journey to realize their authentic selves.
