While Gordon is modally versatile, his ability to facilitate group activity is highly developed and rarely found at the level at which he is able to perform. This specialty is coupled with a thirst for solving problems, the bigger the better. His analytical ability enhanced by his creative drive to find the best and most efficient solution, given real constraints, when used in a group context, makes him not only a group unifier, but one who can lead a group to uncommon accomplishments.
Proud of his native Northern Irish home, Gordon traveled first to Southampton University, England to attain his BA degree in Linguistics, became fluent in French and began his love affair with the enabling power of technology in people’s lives. He worked in London and continental Europe before completing his Masters in Software Engineering at Napier University, Scotland, focusing on Human to Computer Interaction. He moved to the USA in 1999 to consult with businesses primarily around User Experience Design and Social Business, achieving some national notoriety in the field especially with clients using Microsoft’s products.
His early-career experiences lead him into leadership in the personal development and coaching industry and specifically to the love of his live, Facilitation. His comprehensive industry client list spans Academia, Fortune 500 and the political spectrum. He is now working towards a PhD in Social Psychology through Walden University, online (of course). Gordon loves to spend time with his young son Ronan (born 2008) as often as he can. For ‘fun’ Gordon runs ultra long trail distances, mountain bikes and reads e-books – though not simultaneously.
