While very pragmatic and practical I love academic study and explorations.
My Professional Doctorate is in spiritual leadership and co-creating spirited organisations. My MSc is in Change. Several books and articles have been published on my impact as a leader working from a spiritual paradigm. You can find a list of all my writing below.
