Recognised as one of top 100 global influencers in the workplace field in the recently announced Workplace 100™ ( by the highly regarded CREinFocus analysts.

I'm an acclaimed thought-leader and global authority on effective business operation. A noted author of over 120 management books and reports. A Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute and a visiting fellow at three universities, I draw on a 35-year board-level career with IBM and MCI to implicitly understand that opportunities for workplace innovation and investment must continually balance the need to act quickly.

Specialties: I challenge business leaders to innovate by questioning habits and conventions. Working together, inside short order I help to dismantle barriers, overcome corporate inertia, and embrace a mandate for workplace & work practice change. I've built my reputation on knowing organisations better than they do themselves; providing answers and solutions to problems that stifle productivity gains.
