Clients call me when they want to leverage the value of their greatest off-balance sheet asset: their relationships.

For 20 years, I’ve helped leading organizations recognize the many quantifiable ways that relationships drive everything: strategy, innovation, growth, and profitability. I speak 50-60 times a year and have written ten books, translated into eight languages including best-selling Relationship Economics (Wiley), ConnectAbility (McGraw-Hill), Return on Impact (Josey-Bass), and Co-Create (St. Martin’s Press).

My past work includes engagements with executives at Cisco, HP, Gen Re, Chubb, KPMG, Siemens, Deloitte, Disney, ThyssenKrupp, Marriott, Microsoft, IBM, and Equifax, as well as leading industry associations and academic forums.

I serve as an independent director on the boards of two privately held, venture-backed tech companies, and very much enjoy such roles. On numerous occasions, I have facilitated senior leadership/board retreats that focused on critical strategic priorities for these organizations.

A native of Iran I immigrated to the United States in 1981 with a suitcase, $100, limited family ties, and no fluency in English. My life since then is completely a function of my ability to develop – and nurture – strong relationships.
