I focus on good vibes, big goals, healthy relationships, lifting others, deep experiences, pursuing a purpose and relentlessly breaking things better.
What do I do for...
I manage the Diagnostics, Design, Development & Delivery of Corporate Innovation, Transformation, Innovation, Strategy, Special Projects & New Ventures within Public, Private & Social Organisations as COO, NED, 'Head of X' or Senior Consultant; with the aim of building strong Individuals, Teams & Success Stories.
I live to explore the world putting miles on my soul, discover new cultures, Connect Good People, make new memories with old friends, break own Triathlon PBs, try hearty world street food alongside locals, randomly get lost in a new city, Learn new skills, Unlearn knowledge, dance the night/morning away and live this life as close to the edge of my comfort zone as I can.
"Sam provokes and disrupts, a wind-up merchant and a tail puller, a prodder and a poker. When he meets someone’s ‘appropriate’ mask his first impulse is to want to dance with them to the edge of their ‘appropriate’ version of themselves and see what illuminating fun can be had when the mask slips." (Client excerpt from Insanely Gifted by Jamie Catto)
Many moons ago as an entrepreneur, I used poncey buzzwords like ̶N̶i̶n̶j̶a̶ ̶H̶a̶c̶k̶e̶r̶ ̶R̶o̶c̶k̶s̶t̶a̶r̶ ̶P̶i̶o̶n̶e̶e̶r̶ ̶D̶i̶s̶r̶u̶p̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶R̶e̶v̶o̶l̶u̶t̶i̶o̶n̶a̶r̶y to describe myself (stay well clear of these people!); Today, my superpower is to make you unlearn, ʇɥᴉuʞ pᴉɟɟǝɹǝuʇlʎ and have fun along the way responding to and promptly pulling the trigger on external and internal opportunities by introducing and nurturing new ideas, cultures, people, partnerships, processes and products to their businesses.
Friends, family, clients and colleagues are all to thank for instilling a habitual nature in me to help and lead others to be more successful. I challenge the quo, quickly generate ideas then trigger the fastest, toxic-free and easiest ways to transform those ideas into concrete solutions alongside incredible people at every level of an organisation.
I'm proud to have collaborated with, invested in, led and trained some of the most talented and amazing people from start-ups and charities to high-profile organisations and governments to seize and conquer opportunities others didn't see or ever think possible in a manner that removes complexity to really get-shit-done.
I act on ideas, I've taken risks and I've had failures that have only inspired me to go on and repeatedly succeed. I want to meet original and no-nonsense people who aren't afraid of action, failure or taking risks.
If I can help you, you can help me or you just want to see some cool origami and have a laugh.
Get in touch. Boom!
