"The unexamined life is not worth living." – Socrates
John Francis, president of Theonera and creator of TheResumeFilter, lives by Socrates’
words. He injects a love of philosophy and solving problems into his human resources consulting
company, Theonera Inc., based in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
With more than 20 years of talent acquisition experience, he knows well the frustration of manually
going through mass volumes of resumes, looking for the right person with the right skills.
An outside-the-box thinker, a husband, a father and soccer enthusiast, John also believes in
keeping his life in balance. He lives in a rural community outside Waterloo, Ontario, Canada; he
and his family grow their own food, and use geothermal and solar power to operate their home.
He has an MA in philosophy from Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium.
