A new age is within our reach.
An age that could be as important as the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. An age where our ways of being are aligned with what feels right to all living things. An age that is welcoming of new life both tomorrow and in thousands of years.
I'm optimistic because I’ve seen and worked with some incredibly ambitious people who are putting their skills, energy and hearts into solving some of the big challenges humanity is facing, like climate change or education for all. We need more of those people and we need them to work together to make transformational change happen.
Businesses have a crucial role to play in that story because they are spaces where we come together to work towards a common goal. When a business sets itself a clear goal to drive purposeful change in the world, it states that its resources, network and reputation are now in service of that goal. It also invites the dozens, hundreds or thousands of people working within it to put their skills and relationships, as well as their brains and their hearts, in service of that goal.
We need more of those purposeful businesses.
We also need more creative, ambitious and energetic people to spearhead transformational projects within those businesses. Entrepreneurs who are working on the inside and solving big world challenges at the same time. Intrapreneurs, I should say.
I want to help people develop the skills, the confidence and the agency to lead impactful projects in the businesses they are a part of. In service of a better future. There are so many budding intrapreneurs out there and I want to see them flourish!
I write about what I think we need to do to build a bright future, why and how businesses can help, what kind of people businesses need to be able to make positive change happen, and how I can help people build the skills and mindset they need to take on the most meaningful projects on behalf of the business they have chosen to work for.

I join businesses whose mission I feel inspired by. I get drawn to projects which have a transformational impact on people, where I can think big and bold and where I get to work with talented and kind people. The more opportunities I get to learn while doing the work, the more I thrive.
I'm good at shaping meaningful strategies, at spearheading big projects and at leading teams. I get stuff done well and fast. Here are some of the projects I've worked on:
I write about building thriving businesses in which people do meaningful work together, about what I think it takes to become a well-rounded intrapreneur, and also about my recent shift towards directing my work as a free agent.
You can find my writing over there. And here are some of my favourite short essays:

In this piece, I share one of the game-changing moments in my career where I finally 'got' one of the most fundamental unsaid rules in business. A moment that subtly yet undeniably transformed my ways of working and helped shape me as a leader.

I've been thinking about how to bring more humanity and meaning into big businesses. In this piece, I explore how embodiment practices in the workplace would help us reconnect with our inner wants and needs, and help us shape the purposeful businesses we want to see in the world.
