The Chief Nonsense Officer (CNO) was born in the middle of South African wine country, earned three degrees drinking red wine, was chased by a lioness, had to run from elephants, got bored, and moved to Richmond seeking adventure.

As a business consultant and executive coach specializing in strategy development and execution, he has seen a lot of nonsense at work. That’s why he now shows senior executives how to make the nonsense at work – work for them.

When this gets the better of him, he retreats to writing and public speaking until his confidence returns. He has been repeating this cycle for more than 25 years without seriously hurting himself, his clients, his audience or, most importantly, his family.

His books on Amazon can be found here where he will keep adding to the list (he is a realist-optimist, whatever that is).

(He is also currently the full-time CEO & President of a 30-plus-year old wealth management firm. Which is why he is incognito.)
