My 40-year business and professional career has exposed me to great challenges, rewarding successes, disappointing failures, and a rich diversity of experiences in over seventy countries spanning six continents. Most significantly, I founded in 1985 the Mediation Training Institute International (MTI) and fostered its growth to brand dominance as the foremost provider of mediation training in the world. I retired December 31, 2013, as MTI became affiliated with the Center for Conflict Dynamics (CCD) at Eckerd College, St Petersburg, Florida. I currently serve on the Advisory Board of the CCD.
From this experience, I have gained practical insight into the human condition and into enterprise development in the Internet age.
