Guiding Principles


*All of my work starts with Integrity. Easy word to say, hard to live by, even harder to build a life and enterprise with integrity as the foundation. To be able to go to sleep each night knowing that you have lived the highest expression of your integrity…this is to have a good sleep.

*I build models and maps. I help others build models. I like to co-build models most of all. “Argue with the model,” said Bucky. I am most passionate about building new models that make the old obsolete. I have built models of organisational design that enable people to thrive as they co-create world changing projects together, without human upset and entirely self managed. Read an example of this in The Trust Manifesto of Syntropic Enterprises. The result of 30 years of model building. It works.

Business Reimagined

In 2019 I was fed up. Fed up with morally bankrupt leaders and broken systems – so I started a movement that would strive to leave everything touched, better. This idea, this evolution, this belief …became Syntropic Enterprise.

It’s a new take on business. A business plan that celebrates those thinking with the long tomorrow in mind.

Syntropic Enterprise is creating a world with a future. A world where integrity, values and human connection are driven through considered positive productivity for the Earth. It’s this mindset that leads to success and leaves a lasting legacy.

A world with the future of the Universe considered. And not smirked at.

For over 20 years, I have been committed to working with leaders and enterprises globally to invoke change. I experience a deeper level of truth by questioning the basic assumptions that drive us as humans. At the core of my work is the mantra…leave everything you touch, better.

The opposite of evil is indifference, so if not you, then who?

It’s business, reimagined.

My path to here 

Under a Big Blue Sky

R. Buckminster Fuller has been my main mentor since my mid twenties. As an ongoing student of his work I speak systems, design and the geometry of relationships and integrity with fluency.

I was one of the global founders of the Coaching Profession in the 90’s. I was the first non USA Board member of the Global Board of the International Coach Federation (ICF) holding this role for five years, in the final year as Vice President. I was the founding President of the Australasian ICF, setting up the Chapter system in Australia and around the world.

I have worked within the corporate, leadership, startup and future of business space with 100% focus since 1998 – in the early days as a coach, then evolving to create and lead businesses, partner with teams worldwide and mentor leaders who are creating a whole new kind of world.

In 2013 I pitched Sir Richard Branson an idea around his book, Screw Business as Usual.

This pitch led to the creation of a world class event, Big Blue Sky, in 2015 and 2016, in my local city, to convene multi sectorial members of the community, plus a few provocateurs from around the world, to co-create solutions for the future of our city.

The greatest exponential technology is thoughtfully designed human relationships
