My colleagues and clients call me “the collaboration guy” because I spend much of my time thinking, researching, writing and speaking about every facet of collaboration.
I’m a collaboration and communication strategist, speaker, workshop leader, research team leader and the author of two books, "The Culture of Collaboration" (Red Ape Publishing) and "Personal Videoconferencing" (Manning/Prentice Hall).
I’m interested in the interplay of culture, environment and technology to support collaboration. I’m also director of The Culture of Collaboration Institute, which conducts research on, well of course, collaboration.
My work has been featured in media outlets including The Wall Street Journal, CIO Magazine, NetworkWorld, InformationWeek, IndustryWeek, Workforce, America's Network, The Washington Times, Computerworld Canada, CableWorld, Telemedicine Today, Sales and Marketing Management, Communication World, InfoWorld Netherlands, and TechWorld United Kingdom. Also, I’ve appeared on CNBC, CBS News, CNN and on numerous local television and radio broadcasts.
In the consulting and coaching realm, my official title is Chief Strategist of Impact Video Communication, Inc. in San Francisco. I’m currently writing my third book.
