Mike is a leading-edge thinker and renegade who believes that we all must do more to unleash our boundless potential and solve increasingly complex global issues. He envisions a community-centric, expert-guided “power-to-the-edge” solution to most of these issues.

For consultants and other experts, this means that we are too often part of the problem, and need to do a much better job channeling our expertise in a way that delivers much greater impact.
