How to see, think and thrive in a complex world?

Click here for to see what I am up to more recently...

I am an Adjunct Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD. My interest is on how do we develop leaders and in a world that is increasingly complex.


From an early age I moved around the world and had to make sense of new contexts and places. I lived and worked in over six different countries across three continents. I witnessed a nation change from a communist state to a free market economy, I lived in peaceful Western suburbia, and grew up in the mysterious and intense Far East.

These personal experiences have challenged me to become a keen student of people and human systems. In my own journey of development I found love and meaning in developing others.

I completed a PhD on the topic of Trust in Digital Age. I also worked for fast growing digital companies. I designed and launched multiple online products, lead an international expansion, built product and marketing teams in international setting and advised to multiple businesses in the digital transformation.

These days I help leaders and organisations work with ambiguous and complex problems in context of uncertainty. I offer leadership development and coaching for executives dealing with disruption and transformation in their professional and personal lives. My interests are on how we develop as leaders in face of increasingly complex and uncertain world.
