• STRATEGIST
    Clients call upon me to help them devise and deploy their strategies and tactics.  My particular talent is to evaluate a situation quickly – squelching-out the noise and identifying what is important and what is not, what needs to be prioritized, and what actions need to be taken.

 

  • WRITER
    A prolific writer of articles and the author of “State of Readiness”.  I write about how companies operate, the human condition, world economics – and the interrelationships between the three.  I write about the challenges that are faced and the opportunities that exist.

 

  • SPEAKER
    Called upon to deliver keynotes, breakout sessions, master classes and workshops, and participate in panel discussions. Public speaking is my Gemba, (a Japanese word that means “the real place”).  In my Gemba, I meet and connect with those who are living the challenges and opportunities.

 

  • CONNECTOR
    Simply put, if I can’t do it myself, I know someone who can.  Walking the earth for as long as I have, I know a lot of very talented people who, in turn, know many other talented people.  If you want to compress your reaching a conclusion in an expeditious and professional manner – call me.
