Educational Initiatives 

Merrill Lynch
Developed in response to the calamitous loss of trust in the financial system in 2008, The Power and Profitability of Trust was introduced to top-tier Financial Managers at Merrill Lynch. The courses became one of Merrill's top-rated professional development programs. The program helped Financial Managers re-establish trust with their clients - personally, institutionally, and in the financial sector.  
Empowered Learning
Produced educational programs for Empowered Learning, including a program for parents called "Empower Your Child". Co-hosted a nationally syndicated radio program on parenting, distributed by American Public Radio. In addition, produced several hundred free concerts that were presented throughout the New York Metropolitan Area, primarily in inner city schools.
CTPAT stands for Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism. A program initiated by US Customs, it sought to create a world-wide network of all the businesses that traded internationally. The goal was to share and enforce best practices to combat terrorism. We helped put together a consortium between US Customs, L3 Communications, and Fed Ex to develop an online portal and knowledge management system for CTPAT members.

Media and Marketing Initiatives 

L3 Communications

Travelled to Paris, arranged for scientific research at major universities, and developed one of the most provocative marketing campaigns of its day, bringing attention to the issue of cell phone safety.
