About Me

You are probably wondering, why should I listen to you? There are lots of things to read, so why this? I have two answers to that, one simple and one more serious; you can decide which is which.

There are many words we use to describe ourselves. We can emphasize one experience or expertise over another depending on the audience. At the moment you may not know me. I don’t know what your interests are. So while I’m not sure what you want to hear, I promise you will come to know me if you keep reading.

You are probably wondering, why should I listen to you? There are lots of things to read, so why this? I have two answers to that, one simple and one more serious; you can decide which is which:

  • When you are in a restaurant, and have been tempted by the lavish description of a dish on the menu, there still comes a point at which you must lift fork to mouth and taste it. So the easiest way for you to tell if you like my cooking is to sample some.
  • Should you prefer to look at my resume, I could tell you that I served as Group General Counsel to a global S&P 500 company for twenty years, and then ran our sustainability program for several more. Or I could tell you I teach lawyers in the Master’s program at an international university.

For yet a different perspective, I could tell you that I choose to put my professional career aside at an age when most are coming into their peak. And that though it has taken me a few years to extract myself from the important business of others, I am writing to you free of most professional entanglements. Free of them all, in fact, except occasionally teaching and coaching. I find the interaction with other eager minds so satisfying, and I learn so much from it myself, that I do not want to give it up.

That is why I am writing, and that is why I hope you stay and read on. If you do, you may learn as much about yourself as you do about me. And to the extent you are willing to share, I am happy to learn About You and what you are interested in.

Be well.
