How can we work together?


The best players in every sport in the world have coaches.  I believe in coaching as I have benefitted greatly from it.  The higher up you go in an organization the fewer people you can confide in, unfortunately.  A coach is critical to every leaders success.  Have me as a coach or not, you should strongly consider getting a coach.


Making sense of technology is challenging, making sense of healthcare is more challenging, what if you are trying to do both.  I've worked with CEO, CIO, Startup, Investor to chart a course, identify opportunities, and implement plans.  We can engage on projects or interim leadership roles.  It's up to you.


Healthcare is reliant on technology.  Boards should be well versed on cybersecurity, emerging technologies, automation, cloud and other facets of technology that represent risk or opportunity.   


This is the most fun that I have.  I'm not a speaker's-speaker, I'm a conversation starter.  I've always felt that the best communicators start conversations and lead people to explore ideas when the speaking is done.  If you are looking to get a conversation started around healthcare and/or technology reach out.  

Questions we can work on together?

Where do you want to be in 10 years?
Where will healthcare be in 10 years?
Are we prioritizing the right projects?
Should I hire this role, person?
What impact will an emerging technology have?
