Bringing Experience To Bear

On Leadership

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

If we reflect on what our years have taught us, we
discover we have a wealth of knowledge to draw upon and share. Wisdom distilled from experience is among our most powerful contributions to others.

Bringing experience to bear threads through all my current professional endeavors, including our leadership program, personal interviews, public speaking and writing.

I believe wisdom can transform our challenges, allowing us to creatively resolve them with ease and equanimity.

So welcome to my website. If what I do resonates, please get in touch.
 
Leadership is at its core character and clarity of values. There are techniques, of course, but they are peripheral to leadership’s central meaning. After all, it isn’t technique that comes to mind when we think of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Mother Theresa or Nelson Mandela. It’s passion, character and vision.

Leadership is organic and develops from within.

My mission is to work with leaders to explore their innate leadership capabilities through in-depth, personal interviews and team interaction.

The following interviews were conducted on Crystal Cruise’s Serenity, where I was recently invited to be a guest lecturer and interviewer. While on board, I took advantage to discuss life, philosophy and leadership with some of the remarkable people with whom I was sailing. Here are some excepts.

A bit about myself


My current work has been built on strengths acquired as an entrepreneur, university lecturer, business consultant, professional interviewer, coach, public speaker and writer.

My discipline base is first and foremost in the humanities, which includes literature, philosophy, history and psychology. I am a true believer in the humanities. There is hardly a better foundation for living a life. However, I have also found the humanities invaluable in business. 

In our day and age, given the pace of change, we must continually learn new skills and broaden our fields of knowledge. However, the humanities taught me two permanent truths: imagination and creativity will always be among the most important assets for success in any endeavour we undertake. 

Here is my official CV.
