A boutique service for executives on a mission
Why? As a busy executive in an increasingly complex world, you may find yourself without the time to do many of the things that could help you extend your business influence or simply achieve personal growth goals. You may be too busy to keep abreast of the latest peripheral developments in a given area, conduct research vital to the creation of a new product or idea, or you may simply be too exhausted at the end of a long day of meetings to read all you need to read.
Experience that can be of benefit to you: With over 40 years of experience in the corporate world, in travel, and in the world of academia combined, I have a unique perspective on your needs and what could help you connect the dots, find more time to do what you want to do, or simply achieve greater personal peace of mind.
Research First, I personally love to read and research almost any subject, from art history to the latest developments in oil and gas discoveries. I hold a Masters degree in Art History and have taught art history classes at the University of Alabama at Birmingham as well as at Birmingham-Southern College.
Travel Extensive travel throughout England, Europe, Russia and China. If you or your staff have travel needs, I can offer assistance as well as knowledge about these areas, including making travel reservations, booking accommodations, or even finding an out-of-the way and unique location for a meeting.
Speech/Article Writing I have written a book about a prominent mid-twentieth century American businessman as well as a thesis and many other articles for both the business and the academic worlds. I wrote and was editor-in-chief of Harbert Corporations international corporate magazine.
Synopsizing What You Dont Have Time To Read Tell me what your needs are in the way of additional information for your business or even your personal reading requirements. I can read it, synopsize it for you in a one-page or shorter format, and furnish you the heart and core of what you need to know.
Cataloguing, Valuing, and Securing the Safety of Personal / Corporate Collections With experience as an art historian and professor of art history, I have the ability to assess and inventory your collections, whether corporate or private, whether paintings, sculptures, or other objets dart with expertise as well as total confidentiality.

I can help you keep track of your investments or other private financial records with the full knowledge that your private business remains private. I have passed the NASD Series 7 exam to be a registered trader in stocks, bonds, and other investment products.
