Experienced guide for your entrepreneurial journey

I am a(n):

corporate realist™ unlock the power of your business vision start and scale your business community advocate leadership builder creating clarity for your entrepreneurial dreams evidence and experience to grow your business authentic communicator organizational psychologist recovering engineer

I know a lot about:

startups scaling businesses building effective profession relationships facilitating experienced-based masterminds leadership development focusing intent entrepreneurial wellness business model canvas lean startup business systems organizational design business culture

Gaining and maintaining the clarity to take meaningful business action.

I can help you:

  • Turn powerful ideas into sustainable businesses
  • Build effective leadership teams 
  • Create effective partnerships
  • Successfully scale your business
  • Use experiments to start, sustain, and scale your enterprise

Why me:

I've worked with hundreds of founders from around the world to start, sustain, and scale the businesses they want to build.

After a long career in corporate consulting - organizational change management and leadership development - I've spent the last 8-9 years working in the entrepreneurial space. Mostly I work with founders and other business leaders to start, sustain, and scale startups to medium-sized businesses. I've worked with a few hundred entrepreneurs now, from around the globe and we're doing a major project with a semi-governmental agency in sub-Saharan Africa now.

I have a slightly different approach to leadership development and entrepreneurial support. I'm frustrated by the scads of well-meaning "coaches" who promise big results through "mindset alignment" and similar flummery.

The stats on startups are pretty clear - it's hard work and success rates are low. You need to do the work or find a different role. I'm not mean or arrogant about it - I just have seen too many people intent on taking the driver's seat when there are a lot of other important positions on the bus.

I am available for:
