I design effective experiential learning interventions using sports and advanced learning technologies. I am passionate about developing people and making a difference in their lives.

I have the pleasure to be CCO at CELSIM, and our businesses GAINMORE™ Golf and The GAINMORE™ Advantage Toolbox which, after just 12 years research and 2 years of testing we have launched including GAPPS - the GAINMORE™ Advantage Potential to Performance System. GAPPS is a new way of assessing leadership and management potential and actual performance linking users to a personal development plan. Sign up now and gain your advantage.

I have over 20+ years of successful cross-cultural and cross-industry experience as a teacher, trainer, mentor and entrepreneur, across diverse regions including the Far East, Middle East and Europe, which has enabled me to establish a management and leadership development consultancy that has positively impacted world class organisations and SMEs across the globe. I've had the pleasure to have been involved in a wide range of human resource and technology management projects, including management and leadership development, coaching training and team development, business strategy and business transformation and the implementation and effective use of learning technologies.

As a direct result of my expertise and accomplishments, I was asked by Henley Management College to establish a direct presence in Singapore as HQ for all Asia Pacific operations and direct the marketing and support of the Henley MBA. As the Asia Pacific Director, I developed a vigorous marketing campaign that effectively raised brand awareness. I designed and introduced full e-learning support to supplement locally held face-to-face workshops that improved MBA completion.

On the cutting edge of global communications technologies, I have worked closely with world-class organisations, including Astro, Aviva, BT, C&W, Maxis, Nokia, Sime Darby, Standard Chartered Bank, Temasek Holdings, Virgin and many others to develop sustainable learning solutions for their organisational and customer focused needs. Partnering with senior management, I directed the project life cycle for a series of leadership development initiatives for cross-cultural account management teams, formed a new assessment and development centre to facilitate the recruitment and training and coordinated creation of a corporate academy in Asia.

I earned my Doctorate from Henley Management College and continue to research and lead in the utilisation of technology for experiential learning. The featured speaker at numerous professional international conferences, especially in the field of using technology effectively for learning and management development, I have also been recognised professionally through publication of my writings. I continue to lead in the ongoing development and evolution of simulation based training.
