Current role details

Since 2005, I’ve conducted a small consultancy providing service to industries, corporations, NGOs, government agencies, communities and NFPs. Underpinning my service is a unique set of tools, derived from my doctoral studies. Collectively called ‘Cooperative Conversations’, these tools empower effective dialogue, enabling participants to think deeply, listen actively, contribute willingly, ideate creatively, decide wisely and act confidently. Resulting meetings take half the time, while doubling fun, wisdom and commitment. Collectively they bring joy to the workplace. These skills are scalable, replicable, easily learned and applied, Culture is hence changed one conversation at a time
