Purpose & Values

The purpose, vision, mission and values that inspire me.


Inspire and facilitate a new model of power that includes a clear purpose, empowering values and a motivated workforce.


Power is used effectively.


Provide support, resources and inspiration for business founders and leaders to lead beyond hierarchy.


  1. Make conscious decisions about how power is used even over relying on familiar systems | There are more intuitive ways of doing things, that work.

  2. Consider the broad impact of the business even over using financial indicators as an exclusive measure of success | What we do, matters.

  3. Understand why you’re doing what you’re doing even over maintaining the status quo | Align to a purpose based on values you care about.

  4. Develop connections even over making assumptions | We are human beings.

  5. Recognise the value of impact even over the pursuit of growth | Evolution is powerful.
