|“Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert. We benefitted greatly from George’s large know-how on creating and nurturing communities of practices. He helped us in the conception and development of the strategic planning Community of Practice at the European Commission with competence, wisdom, and a smile. We learned a lot from him, including his unique way of being fully present in all circumstances, and we continue tapping on this knowledge in spreading a more participatory culture in the organisation.”
The European Commission
“I always knew that none of us is as smart as all of us. I built my value propositions around that key idea and its practical implications for organisation design, innovation, culture change, communities of practice, and just about any client assignment that I worked on. After reconsidering the idea, I don’t think that collective intelligence (defined as our collective cognitive faculties) is enough to meet the interwoven, complex challenges towering over organisations and societies. The key is to awaken our collective wisdom.”
George is an evolutionary mentor and strategic learning partner to future-responsive leaders in business, government and civil society, in matters of radical innovation & resilience, inter-sector collaboration, collective intelligence & wisdom, communities of practice, “wildfire learning” & capability development.
He is also a community architect for global, multi-stakeholder events, who integrates electronic, knowledge, and social process tools into a coherent, well-crafted whole of online and on-site work sessions. George’s own life’s journey enabled him to combine European values with American “can do” spirit and ancient wisdom traditions. He brings them to bear on the assignments he works on.
George is based in the UK.
