"I thought I was going nuts. After hearing you speak, though, I knew I wasn’t alone in my thinking about our shared future. Thank you for being a pragmatic realist."
I'm a regular contributor to major publications and speak to an array of global audiences on issues of sustainability, geopolitics, communications, and societal change. I am the Programme Director for The Conference Board’s Asia Sustainability Leaders Council and serve on the board of advisors to the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce.
"Thanks, John. You were really awesome. You’ve given my business hope to keep doing what we are doing."
My global career has taken me from Los Angeles to New York, Shanghai to Seoul to Melbourne. I've had the privilege of working with the United Nations, McKinsey, A.C. Nielsen, and as a consultant with BSR, the world’s largest sustainability-focused business network. A decade of experience living and working in Asia inspired me to found Fulcrum Strategic Advisors with a mission to help companies, governments, and individuals understand, adapt, and capitalize on the seismic shifts happening in the world today.
These experiences have all led to my unique perspectives on sustainability and how to communicate the topic in a way that's relatable.
What do I love talking to people about? A few of my favorite big ideas:
Sustainability’s messed up, but here’s how to fix it
Why going green isn’t going to save us
Communicating your message (so people listen)
Creating a business for good
China: a global leader in sustainability
From keynotes to podcasts, TV interviews to panels, I'm always on the hunt to share my refreshing, no-BS sustainability insights.
