Business Efficiency Expert & Custom Software Developer
I’ve been helping business for the past 28 years, primarily by developing custom solutions to streamline the business. As an outsider, I often see things that are generally overlooked, and part of what I do is to look out for those things, and then bring them to the right peoples attention. As a business owner, I’ve discovered what to look for; as a developer, I know exactly what is possible, and what isn’t, and am often able to deliver solutions that they had previously thought impossible.
I’ve been a banker, a soldier (military intelligence – yes, I’m aware that is an oxymoron); a croupier, a professional poker player, an art dealer, a business owner & manager and a FileMaker developer (since 1987 which, sometimes, makes me feel old). I love what I do and I consider myself incredibly lucky to be able to make a living doing it. A great part of the joy and my job satisfaction is seeing businesses being transformed through the proper use of technology.
Transformational Insights-Advanced Decision Making + Leadership Awareness for Complexity
In 2003, I was facilitating an organizational change initiative where everyone had the great intention to make leaps toward a compelling vision. Momentum jumped forward and then, inexplicably, rolled back. Able to see the big picture and how fast things were changing technologically, ecologically and socially I knew, in that moment of awareness, that unless decision makers seized the opportunity for growth at a personal, leadership and company level, companies would fail to adapt.
Being brought up by a professional naturalist and wildlife photographer and world traveller makes it easy for me to see systemic inter-relationships along with what no one is paying attention to. Nature is a master of using complexity to manage resilience. Using simple principles to expand leadership and business agility, resilience and great workplaces, people can bring their whole selves to work. All powered by decision making awareness at accelerated heights!
