My Work
I’m a guy who likes to learn. I am a New Zealander but have spent the last ten years working and living in the U.S., Asia, Europe, Britain, Scandinavia and the Middle East. I specialize in leadership development for senior executives and helping organizations build resilience in times of change. Before joining CCL® I ran my own consulting company and spent the last ten years delivering leadership programs for senior leaders around the world. Some of my clients include: NASA, TDBank, Deloitte, Red Bull, Minnesota Wild Hockey, Kellogg’s, Qantas and Comcast. I’ve worked across industries including; engineering, energy, law, banking, accounting, construction and television. Before beginning my business career, I was a professional rugby player and coach for seven years.

My Current Role
I am the Senior Faculty for C.C.L. Texas. Right now my team and I are rapidly growing a new territory out of our offices in Austin (the live music capital of the world – self anointed). In addition I continue to work as lead faculty on some of CCL’s biggest global accounts. Much of my recent work has focused on helping organizations who are going through significant change to build resilience from the top of the organization out to the front lines.

My Educational Background
I have a Master’s degree from Harvard University where I focused most of my studies on leadership and learning. I have two undergraduate degrees from Otago University (New Zealand) in business administration and physical education.
