Independent HR Innovator and Disruptor. Author of Freedom Management, speaker, consultant on transformation and people.
I help change occur by leveraging human resources, uncapping their potential through an integral application fo the principles of Freedom Management, my recent book on the future of organisations. I inspire CXOs and Senior HR Leaders to incorporate technology and new social technology into their organisations. I provide a powerful rationale for change which renders my keynote and speeches inspirational, but always rigorous and relevant.
