We are so interdependent, our global systems so efficient, that the slightest blip (a boat stuck in the Suez canal) can affect us all (our packages don’t arrive on time). A major disruption on the scale of Covid, and of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, has catastrophic effects on all of us.

Scaling New Ventures
My passion is helping new ventures scale. The pace and challenges of a new venture business are unique, and present unique issues which sometimes founders need help getting through.

They’ve taught me a great deal about the value and dangers of process, growing too quickly, and managing complexity. You can read a bit about them in the corporate section of my site.
