About Me

Award-winning Writer, Sustainability Leader, Host/Facilitator & Big Ideas Speaker

I’m an award-winning writer, purpose-led entrepreneur and deep change expert who helps businesses Navigate Deep Change™, a process drawn from my three decades of on-the-ground investigative reporting and analysis of contentious and controversial issues. I apply my highly collaborative approach to show clients and audiences how to bridge divides and build consensus in service to developing sustainable, inclusive, and purpose-led organizations and communities.

My expertise

Lead with purpose in a time of deep change

The world we are familiar with is becoming history. In its place is rising a new era – the knowledge age – which will be powered by the mobility of people, capital, ideas, and information. Driving this transition is massive technological change, which is causing equally massive economic, social, political and ecological change. All these disruptions are causing people to question and re-examine fundamental cultural and institutional values. This is deep change. To successfully manage our way through it we all need to shift how we work and how we think. Specifically, we need leaders who can work through competing demands to develop new processes, policies, products, services and experiences that provide more help than harm.
