I believe the future of enterprises and brands is at the intersection customer management and technology platforms. Products enveloped with, services and trust-driven personalisation for a customer of one, will be the ones that will survive and win in the marketplace. I have been a Thinker, Change Agent, Student, Mentor, Strategist and Customer Management Architect with a keen eye for relentless execution. I believe permanent skilling is the only way to stay future relevant. I work with many people and companies to help them achieve these purposes.
