I am known among smart executives, who might be CEOs one day, for practical business strategies - practical because they are crafted in real world, not academia; business - because I rarely work for governments (I enjoy working with commercial organisations more); and strategies because my work always has significant strategic component allowing me to focus on the few things that matter the most. I think deeply, and speak clearly.
I am the trusted advisor who select executives call when they want to multiply profits URGENTLY using the full power of Global Supply Networks. When they know in their hearts that, with the right external advisors, their teams can get much better results, executives from corporations around the world enlist us.
In 2000, I co-founded Global Supply Chain Group, a high-impact services company comprising supply-chain pioneers and visionary thinkers. Previously, I was a management consultant with top-tier strategy firm Booz Allen & Hamilton, where I studied with the best supply chain minds with a single passion – learning how to create, configure, and formulate effective, secure and sustainable global supply chains. In last 13 years we created several new breakthroughs in Supply Chain - including business transformations led by SCM 3.0.
My more than 400 projects have spanned approximately 84 countries on five continents, with clients ranging from fortune 500 companies to innovative green technology companies. My work has added cumulative value in excess of $1 Billion, incorporating major transformations in supply chain infrastructure, investments, profitable growth through global supply chain realignment, and, cost reduction.
My articles are published in respected journals and business magazines, and occasionally, I speak at business schools, conferences and workshops around the world. I also continue to write books based on my experience and expertise.
I have also delivered several keynote speeches at notable events around the world, including Chairing the Terrapin conference on supply chain in Melbourne.
Since 2006, I have played a pro-active role in use of social media for business thought leadership through my blogs, professional groups on LinkedIn, and twitter. Currently, I have a social media followership of over 40,000 senior executives and highly influential professionals around the world.
