I'm an old school liberal with a love of self organizing systems. I hold a masters degree in IT, specializing in artificial intelligence and enjoy exploring the edge of organizational behavior. I specialize in finding the many great things that are happening in the world, and helping organizations apply these changes to their own environments.

I also blog for some of the biggest sites in the industry, including Forbes, the Huffington Post and the BBC, whilst also covering the latest trends on my own website.

I have also delivered talks on the subject for the likes of the NUJ, the Guardian, Stevenage Bioscience, EdTechX, the House of Lords and CMI, whilst also appearing on shows such as BBC Radio 5 Live and Calgary Today.
