Collectively, we face the biggest crisis in recent human history. Climate change is affecting people everywhere, especially in poor countries. We face wholesale destruction of the ecological system on which all life depends. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have killed, injured or displaced thousands and created almost half the world’s 11 million refugees. We have been robbed by the financial crisis and its consequences. Despite many initiatives, global economic and social injustice, extreme poverty and violence persist. People are aware of a deep malaise. There is growing awareness that Globalisation in its present form is not working and is unsustainable. The UN Summit in Copenhagen failed to produce the decisive action that millions hoped for. We now need to renew our efforts and campaign even more strongly for radical change.
My new book - A better world is possible is for people who want to make sense of the situation and take strong action. It provides comprehensive proposals. Click on NEW BOOK to find out more.
The good news is that this crisis is an opportunity that could lead to happier, more fulfilling lives for everyone! I believe we shall all be more at ease in such a world.
People, businesses and governments are reacting. The ball is rolling, but far too slowly to avert disaster. There is a lack of strategic leadership. Many people are in denial, carrying on with "business as usual." Many believe there is little or nothing they can do or are waiting for someone else to act. The global economic system has to be changed. Consumerism and continuous rapid economic growth are unsustainable. We need to transform the way we live; we need a change of consciousness. That is what the new generation demands.
As people become more informed and aware, their values and consciousness change. This is how systemic change in the world comes about – many people doing what matters to them.
This site is for anyone who wants to change things for the better. The purpose is to provide you with resources to do this. These include:
- an analysis of the current global economic system - why it's unsustainable
- the underlying key issues
- what needs to be done to change the system
- ways of facilitating and co-creating change
- the kind of leadership needed in the 21st Century
- ways of creating better, sustainable workplaces which bring out everyone's potential and serve people's needs.
You will find thinking and processes to help you; articles, reviews, books, events and links to other like-minded people who are working for change.

This requires a cultural revolution! Changing the world and creating better workplaces hang together. We need to do both.
I also provide services to help you do these things. I work with associates. Discover our mission, how we're different and what benefits we can bring. Essentially, we offer facilitation and support from a practical, holistic, global perspective. I listen to a lot of different people and you can see what they say in the Who I Am section of this web site.
I hope you will find the website inspiring and useful. I welcome your feedback.
