Simpson's work included projects with corporate, non-profit, government and individual clients such as James Orbinski of Doctors Without Borders. The records in this series include Powerpoint presentation print-outs, overhead transparencies, clippings, magazines, correspondence and memoranda. There are also knowledge products such as workshop manuals, toolkits, workbooks and "mind thumpers" of the Innovation Expedition -- concise learning resources focused on a particular topic. The second part of the series consists of theme files. These were resource files used by Simpson to create mentoring toolkits in the mid-1990s and cover\ business, economical and innovation issues such as education, change management, strategic planning and the new knowledge economy. The theme files contain articles, papers, reports, speeches, publications, clippings, toolkits, exercises and tools, presentations, overhead transparencies, notes, University of Western Ontario course syllabi and papers, memoranda, and cartoons. Some theme files relate to specific projects, such as AVCO and the Canada-Kenya Executive Management Program.
