► helping the United Nations create and launch their AI for Global Good ecosystem.
► pioneering artificial intelligence (AI) in the early days of IBM Watson®
► convincing Global Fortune 500 to forge the first set of products into nascent markets and industries
► sharing my story of overcoming fear of public speaking and writing to become a dynamic, inspiring speaker and bestselling author
I have been blessed to advise Global Fortune 500 companies, small-medium business, government agencies, non-profits, and academia. The common thread to all of them, they needed my help to become a creator and leader of the digital future. This ranged from product line expansion to entering new markets to driving adoption to being a teacher/speaker.
I help organizations disrupt themselves before someone else disrupts them. I am the Sherpa who unlocks those hidden opportunities, the architect the constructs the bridge to those opportunities, and the counselor that creates a safe environment to manage risk and establish buy-in.
My approach to helping clients is based upon:
► 𝗔𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗲𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗼𝘂𝘁𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘀 through defined strategic goals and tactical activities that yield tangible benefits
► 𝗦𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗴𝘂𝗮𝗴𝗲 to facilitate communication, understanding, and use of relatable, relevant examples
► 𝗙𝗼𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘀𝗮𝗳𝗲𝘁𝘆 so that clients do not feel like they are taking unbridled risk or pressured to starting a venture they do not believe or establish buy in for
► 𝗖𝘂𝗹𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗲𝗺𝗽𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗲𝗻𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 to develop a culture of client innovation and action to bring hidden opportunities to life
► 𝗟𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗴𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗺𝘆 𝗽𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗴𝗲 to help the client with my knowledge, skills, credibility, and business network
