Expert Overview

Capitan, Sea Salt Learning

My work explores the Social Age, and the contexts of leadership, learning, culture, and change, at the intersection of formal and social systems.

I am an evidence based practitioner, proud to work with some of the most incredible organisations in the world, supporting them in finding their way, and building practical capability, in this new space.

I am an author, with 14 books, and over 2,000 blog posts and articles to my name: i #WorkOutLoud, which means that my work is evolutionary and adaptive, and i am unafraid to be wrong, if i am open minded enough to learn how to be right, through research and prototype.

I founded Sea Salt Learning in 2014 as an enterprise level partner through change:

  • We provide strategic consultancy and form Navigation Partnerships at exec level.

  • We build capability in teams through a broad Certification programme and immersive Experiences.

  • We partner on the design and delivery of global solutions around leadership, culture, learning transformation and change.

I have written 14 books so far, including:

  1. The Social Leadership Handbook
  2. The Trust Sketchbook
  3. Social Leadership: My 1st 100 Days
  4. To the Moon and Back: Leadership Reflections from Apollo
  5. The Community Builder Guidebook
  6. The Trust Guidebook
  7. The Social Learning Guidebook

I help organisations adapt to be fit for the Social Age, to understand the notion of a Socially Dynamic Organisation, and to take practical steps to evolve.

I am a passionate advocate for social justice and willing to fight for fairness.

Awarded the Learning Performance Institute 'Colin Corder Award for Services to Learning', 2016.
