"My purpose and my passion is to create experiential/experimental learning environments and spaces where leaders, teams and individuals can find the inspiration they need to explore new ways of thinking and doing. My approach is cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural, art-inspired, aesthetic, sensual, sensitive as well as pragmatic and practice-driven."
