Experience worth Sharing

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 helpful to us all. It can guide, inspire and encourage us to live the adventure of our aspirations. I call it Experience Worth Sharing.

Experience Worth Sharing threads through all my professional endeavours: Leadership consulting; one-on-one memoir; interviews; public speaking and writing.

I believe that wisdom and insight transform our challenges, allowing us to resolve them with greater ease and creativity. 

So welcome to my website, and if what I do resonates, please get in touch.
My mentor/coaching work is the consequence of having had a number of mentors throughout my career.

These men and women have played important roles in my successes and have given me solace and perspective when I have failed. They have prodded me to look at things differently, more expansively, challenging my assumptions and pointing out my blind spots. 

They have taught me to ask the right questions in moments of crisis and remind me to rejoice in my successes.



"The years teach much which the days never know."

CRYSTAL Series Interviews

The following interviews were conducted on Crystal Cruise’s Serenity where I was a guest lecturer. I took advantage to discuss life, philosophy and leadership with some of the remarkable people with whom I was traveling.

Seven Days is a fresh, innovative Vermont newspaper, which knows the state like no other. It recently published an in-depth article on my interview work. Take a look.

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.
