I have been in the marketplace for a generation and have been described as a thought leader, vision-caster, culture-shaper, innovator, implementer, capitalizer, pioneer and establisher.

My colleagues (at The Institute) and I have worked with over 400 companies around the world to discover a Purpose that is bigger than the bottom line.

An author of many books (14+), all focused at addressing challenges in life or society, I am a student of leadership, capital, societal transformation and work-life integration. (

We train trainers who facilitate learning experiences on Repurposing Business, LEMON Leadership, Convergence and Transforming Society and Heartistry. My wife and I personally lead Executive Intensives a few times a year, and lead a cohort for executives called Bizcipleship.

We married 41+ years ago, started life in South Africa, moved to Silicon Valley in 1986 and now split our time between the USA and Africa, with travels to Europe and SE Asia in the mix.
