Entering my 35+ years in Information Technology, see my bio and In the news for more details, I have already taken an active part in the last major paradigm shifts in our industry: the personal computing revolution in the ’80s, the Internet bubble in the ’90s, the cloud & mobile computing, social networking, Artificial Intelligence (AI/ML), Internet of Things (IoT) in the new Millenium. With a focus on B2B tech, I tend to write and talk about topics including authentic leadership, corporate social responsibility, purpose-driven business, and more. I enjoy public speaking very much.

Having provided executive leadership for fast-paced High Tech businesses in marketing, communications, digital, business development, product management (CPO), M&A, and alliances roles, I started as an entrepreneur, founding my own software company, and then served major global IT vendors in international roles. I bring my global and seasoned experience, strategic thought leadership, ideation, persuasion, passion, and high energy to help teams of any size thrive in complexity, speed, and change. Mentoring and coaching are an integral part of my professional work, and I find them fulfilling, especially with Millennials and Gen-Z.

“Mentoring, coaching, educating, and helping others is what drives me. Seeing people grow and succeed is the most fulfilling work I can do, and it’s what gets me up every morning.”

Visiting Robben Island in South Africa, I was impressed by how committed Nelson Mandela was, despite all the obstacles in prison, to educate his fellow inmates. As he put it, ‘Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.‘ His words continue to inspire me to this day.
