He has a particular passion for accountability where he co-founded The Accountability Institute – a progressive platform with an aim of fostering collaborations between art, science, technology and economics, bringing these fields into conversation to create a new language of business – a language of accountability. He researches in the areas of integrated thinking, learning technologies, holistic systems design and regenerative economics.
