JOHN'S career spans 30 years, 2 continents, and organizations as diverse as Oracle, Citibank and GE. A Mathematics graduate, John moved to California in 1990. He helps technology companies create, develop and deliver their story for fund raising, market development and influencer programs. He also works with businesses to ensure they understand, and are ready, for the ever accelerating changes that technology is bringing to their industry. John is a co-founder of Expert Alumni and gleXnet and long before futurists and industry watchers were writing about the impending challenges that industries were going to be facing, they predicted a perfect storm of issues like skills gap, declining work forces, the gig economy, people trained to do work no longer needed, demographic shifts, economic and social change, market upheaval and rapidly changing ways of doing work. From the beginning they have promoted the idea that massive change was coming to how organizations should think about their workforce, with a singular focus on simplifying the interface between people and their work. Understanding the challenges ahead of the curve, the solution was built to arrive at a better understanding of the greatest restraint to business operations - competence, not capital. gleXnet provides unparalleled insights into an organizations people and operations by flipping the problem from the perspective of people, not the business.

This is the first of a four-part series about ‘data’ that concludes with my take on the topic and why it is important. Nontechnical, hopefully fun, definitely not definitive and absolutely a work in progress. Don’t underestimate the DANGER we...
Michael and Andrew. Two young boys, growing up to be young men in a small midwestern town. School friends. Inseparable. Andrew, the quiet unassuming one. Michael, the ring leader. The fire stoker. They did everything together. Everything. Until they...
Nobody quite knew where he came from - or how he got there. But there he was. Every day 11.00 am on the nail. One Espresso, never finished - ever. At 11:30 he would touch his phone for the...
St. George’s Day Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019 is the day for all Englishmen and women to remember and celebrate the Patron Saint of England … St George. I am going to predict the usual lackluster turn out on the day...
This article first appeared in Social Media Today, May 1st, 2015. But it remains just as relevant today … read on. A webinar promotion popped into my social feed this past week asking the question, “Who owns social selling?” It...
