What I bring to the table

I bring to the table 40 years of professional experience and a variety of skills, including:



1.Critical thinking, coupled with a highly ethical code of conduct;
2. Entrepreneurship insights: I have set up and operated one of the first virtual multi-family
offices, with access to families in business having over 500 billion dollars-worth of assets
under management;
3. Legal strategy and risk management: I have corporate finance expertise, having worked at
1st-tier US and Canadian law firms, a European global multi-national corporation, and
privately-held family businesses;
4. Global network spanning across the five continents, coupled with unique communication,            and negotiation skills: I have a wealth of experience building enduring and successful                      partnerships, and managing stakeholder relationships;
5. Governance: I contributed to the institutionalization of over 150 family-controlled businesses,      separating emotions from reason, and ownership from management;
6. Inter-generational conflict management: I am an expert at devising social contracts and              reconciling feuding families, while paving the way for NextGen family entrepreneurs interested        in taking over the mantle from their seniors, in an orderly fashion; and
7. Coaching and Mentoring: Over the years, I was successful in coaching a number of patriarchs        ‘let go’ as well as C-Suite executives ‘embrace’ family business spirit. Also, I mentored NextGen      family entrepreneurs and helped them forge their own ambitions and follow their heart.
