Tell us a little bit about your role in your company/organization.

I wear a lot of hats. I'm the founder and executive director of my primary business, The Future of Work...unlimited. I'm also Global Research Director for a firm based in Hong Kong, Occupiers Journal Limited. And I'm a partner in a London-based consortium called The FutureWork Forum.

What projects are you currently working on that are aimed at improving cities?

I'm guiding a financial services firm in Chicago towards a flexible work program that enables about 40% of their staff to work from home several days a week, reducing commute-time congestion.

What urban innovations have you seen or worked on in the last year that you think are game changers?

Some companies are beginning to coordinate their flexible work programs through social media, enabling employees from many different organizations to find each other for ride-sharing.


I'm a writer, speaker, and consultant. I'm dedicated to showing people how to take charge of their future at work.
