Future Thinking, Innovation, Strategy, Leadership and Corporate Culture:

These are my passions and I’d love to be able to share my thoughts with you.

His new book, Expert mavericks was #1 Top seller on Amazon in 3 different business categories! I’m one of the youngest graduation speakers at University of Johannesburg for their Engineering dept.

In my rather brief career, I’ve helped over 1,000 young entrepreneurs, project developed an online platform to create 50,000 websites (one every 10 minutes!), filed 2 patents and started 3 companies.

The first was a technology company to help partially sighted children maximize their remaining vision. The second, a consulting company helping develop entrepreneurs and scenario and strategy planning.

The third was a cleantech non-profit in Silicon Valley, California. Craig Wing is now a partner at the 27 year old FutureWorld, helping clients understand the nexus of Future Strategy.
