I love helping entrepreneurs and project managers go from "idea" to "success"!
I've been in the software industry for over 20 years. For the last 12 years I've been an entrepreneur in the software, energy, management consulting, and finance industries. I've created, grown, bought, and sold companies and ideas.
Before then I spent 11 years with Shell (the energy company).
In those 20+ years I've been involved in strategy and business from all perspectives - entrepreneur, project manager, researcher, analyst, consultant...you name it!
My primary goal in my training is to combine the best of theory with practical experience and examples to ensure successful execution.
I like to distill "complex" topics into simple and practical principles for students, so that they can avoid the mistakes many (including me) have made, and get outstanding results in the most efficient way possible.
I've experienced many times that "history doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes"...I think historical knowledge is an underrated weapon and I try to show the power of simple principles using well-researched historical examples so that my students avoid reinventing the wheel and also build their general knowledge about the area of interest.
More About Me
I'm a very inquisitive person with a wide range of intellectual interests. I look at the world primarily through a "core principles" view - the same way I try to deepen my understanding of core principles in any business area, I continuously try to deepen my understanding of lasting principles applicable to all aspects of life.
