About the Author

Gordon Montgomery
Gordon Montgomery
Help others. Be brilliant.

Research. Innovation. Transformation. Education.

My mission is to transform individuals and teams within organizations, universities and schools such that, through conversation and direct action, we all work together to put the past behind us, begin to learn and create more engaging, productive and dignified ways of earning a living. We create future workforce possibilities for our next generation through the rapid and judicious application of business process engineering, right-technology-right-time delivery and leadership empowerment that grow the culture, community and world-at-large in unprecedented, extraordinary and high-performing ways.

Hire me to (a) speak passionately about 21st century, educational and business transformation, (b) run Professional Development Workshops or (c) just help smaller groups fullfil on the vision for their immediate goals.
