I have had many “careers” – accountant, systems analyst, trainer, consultant, auditor, academic, executive manager, human resource director, contemplative monk and author. I have more than 10 years experience with online learning, teaching and marketing. I think my experience reinforces the belief that we have many orientations within our life stream and life is a continuous learning journey.  There are, however, some underlying and integrating themes that constitute our uniqueness.  Much of my worklife focus has been on helping managers and organisations to be the best they can be – to build individual and organisational capacity.
