From time to time, I’m asked to publicly speak or comment on issues related to leadership, purpose, collaboration, technology, learning, talent, employee engagement and/or culture.


I also occasionally write formal pieces in various magazines. I also write at Forbes, The Huffington Post, Psychology Today and Harvard Business Review.


Some of those quotes and columns can be found below.
