Business has the power to change reality on this planet.

Businesses must approach activity impact not just profit.
Being human is about experiencing life.
We connect through our vulnerabilities. We disconnect through our certainties.
Is it more important to be right or to have what I want?
I am a knight. I’m a bit of an adventurer…I’ve run dogsleds above the Arctic Circle, am an aerobatic and glider pilot, have a bareboat skippers certificate, taught scuba, am certified in underwater search and rescue, canoed a jungle river in Centra America, camped among lions in Africa, and have flown with a jet pack.

Think Like A Journalist Quote
“If your conduct is determined solely by considerations of profit you will arouse great resentment.” ―Confucius

Success Quote 

”We connect through our vulnerabilities.” It’s all about connection…all any business is, is a collection of people that are in relationship. If the relationships are working well the business is going to be successful

Career Highlight

When It Didn’t Work
Two stories. Blaine was helping a Japanese client’s client to do a workshop in Japan. His longtime client became upset. It turned into a huge theatrical mess. You have to listen to believe this one!
Is it more important to be right or to have what I want?
