I am focused on how technology opens new possibilities for social transformation and innovation within business.    I am Partner and Director Digital Strategy, EMEA with Fleishman Hillard.  I blog here, on O’Reilly Radar, and write a column for Forbes.com.

I deliver strategic consulting, competitive planning, speaking and hands-on innovation labs to help good companies get to the future first.  I have been a guest lecturer at Harvard University and have spoken at conferences related to technology and digital strategy around the world.  Key clients include Philips, Kraft Foods Europe, Akzo Nobel,  Best Buy, AT&T, Visa, Autodesk, and Polycom.  My writings have appeared on Forbes.com, Mashable and Fast Forward and I have had some serendipitous encounter with television (NBC Press Here TV and CBS Evening News).  I also created,  the Future at Work series of video interviews with O’Reilly Media and Social Sense and Sensibility, a video series with Forbes exploring business etiquette in the age of social networks.
