Thanks for making the time to visit my website. I'm known as The Entrepreneurial Futurist - because I'm really good at helping entrepreneurs and businesses of all kinds to future proof themselves. And let's be honest, in a world spinning ever faster, where we all struggle to keep up with the rate of change, it's very easy to lose relevance, and once lost, it's impossible to regain.
As a bestselling author, entrepreneur and global presenter, I get to work with some extraordinary people around the world. My clients include everyone from new and aspiring business owners right through to organisations like the European Union, CBS, Hewlett Packard and many more.
At the same time I’ve built a strong reputation as trainer and mentor, helping people to become world class communicators through writing books and building presentation skills. I run all kinds of specialised training programmes and workshops, where I share the knowledge and expertise that has helped me to build a successful global business.
A few of the things I'm proud of achieving over the the years are:
My website is jam packed with information about what I do (you will soon work out that I do lots of different stuff, but only stuff that I am truly passionate about)! There are also loads of free resources for businesses and individuals, as well as updates about my latest events, workshops, books and products.
If you would like to work with me in some way, please feel free to drop me a line and let’s see where we go from there.
The Entrepreneurial Futurist - International Bestselling Author and Global Speaker
Some might say that mine is a ‘rags to riches’ story, and I guess that’s true. But, if you’re thinking I shot to fame in some kind of overnight success, you couldn’t be further from the truth…
I don’t know exactly when or where I was born, I just know that my start in life was as an orphan. Like thousands of other kids in this situation, I ended up in the system, which in turn led to a set of ugly experiences.
It would have been easy to become a victim of the circumstances and continue down the path of drugs and crime that I was stumbing aimlessly down. But one day, there I was, sitting at the foot of my driveway when a startling realisation hit me "if I don’t change my life now, right this minute, I’m going to end up dead or in prison, I’m going to hurt someone or do something horrible".
The choice was simple: I could become a statistic, or I could choose a different path forward.
Cut to 30 years later I’m an entrepreneur on the global stage, a best selling author of 12 books and a ‘small business authority’ in the media. I teach big business how to talk to small business, small business how to think big, and individuals to build the business they have spent their life dreaming about.
As a result of the success I’ve created for myself and others, I’ve had the opportunity to do lots of cool stuff, travelling the world speaking about what I've learned, what I've observed and what I think the future holds for those in the world of business . I am passionate about passing on the lessons I have learned in life and in business, and it brings me enormous satisfaction to energise others and help them to succeed at what they do.
