“There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries” (Shakespeare) 

I love to share my knowledge, experience, and skills with Boards, CEO's/ CFO's/ Entrepreneurs/ Business Owners looking to create value in their businesses and the lives of those whom they touch. This requires insight into catching the right waves that power success and experience for avoiding the swamps that drain resources and energy. 

I help take business strategy beyond interesting ideas to realised opportunities through direction finding, systematic feedback, and efficient, effective, and economic implementation and control. I love to help people who have encountered the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" after having decided to follow their dreams. I assist CEO's/ Entrepreneurs/ Business Owners to build valuable businesses and lives. 

"Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth" - Mike Tyson
