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 can be helpful to us all. It can guide, inspire and encourage us to live to our highest standards and aspirations. I call it Experience Worth Sharing.

Experience Worth Sharing threads through all my professional endeavors, including: leadership consulting, personal interviews, mentor coaching, writing and public speaking. 

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

So welcome to my website. If what I do resonates, please get in touch.

My leadership work is partially the result of having collaborated with many wonderful mentors during my career. These men and women have inspired me with their vision, character and generosity in sharing what they know. They taught me once and for all that leadership grows organically from within and is nurtured by experience, reflection and humility.


"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 recently invited to be a guest lecturer and interviewer. While on board, I took advantage to discuss life, philosophy and leadership with some of the remarkable people with whom I was sailing. Here are some excepts.

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.
