Gordon works with visionary leaders to EVOLVE wildest dreams into stark reality.
Gordon guides visionary leaders, through an energetic process of rapid evolutionary upgrades, rooted in fairness, flowing from the highest version of their mission to design a wholly new experience.
His typical client is often the type of leader who has always had “a knowing” that they see things “differently”, especially in the light of the coming technological and cultural challenges which we are calling #wave21.
The outcome of this work is:
- an evolved, soulful vision and mission
- pragmatic reality for the client, team and organization, ultimately
- allowing access to actions for the most joyful possible experience.
Phases: 1. Detoxification 2. Focus 3. Mastery 4. Emergence.
Born in the revolutionary, war-torn, year of 1968; proud of his native Northern Irish home; Gordon had already emigrated and returned from Australia in the 1970s. He completed his early schooling at Portora Royal School in Enniskillen. As a young man he traveled first to Southampton University, England to attain his BA degree in Linguistics, became fluent in French and modern languages before deepening his love affair with the enabling power of digital technology in people’s lives. He consulted in London, starting at Arthur Andersen. His work took him to enterprises in continental Europe before completing his Masters in Software Engineering at Napier University, Scotland, finishing top in Human Computer Interaction. His re-location in the late 1990s to the USA enabled him to continue to catch the business & technology management consulting wave, where he served and built businesses for 20 years, designing optimal experiences with the world’s top corporate and academic institutions.
Following a definitive life wake-up call in 2008, catalyzed by the birth of his son Ronan, and subsequent divorce, he transitioned to becoming an Executive Coach in 2010, an ordained minister and received an honorary Doctorate of Divinity. He now serves as Chief Experience Officer (futurist ux consultant + evolutionary executive coach) based in Austin, Texas.
