The All Blacks taught me all about how to leave a legacy. If you play a bigger game, you play a better game. Higher purpose delivers higher performance. The All Blacks seek to ‘leave the jersey in a better place’. What drives your team?

My vision is to hack the leadership DNA of the top executive teams in the world of technology and to apply my experience and skills to raise our client’s performance bar.

I am drawn to personal development and have loved being in the classroom of life building successful international recruitment and leaders’ businesses that operate differently from my contemporaries.

I see myself as a strategic leadership adviser to CEO’s and their Boards in Silicon Valley. My work includes designing winning strategies to recruit world-class leadership and the coaching of leaders to perform at the top of their game. I am an expert in CEO transition/succession and critical hires reporting to the CEO.
