We're the PureReinvention team. When we get together you can count on eye-opening conversations, questions that make you say, "I've never thought about it that way," and more than a little humor. We enjoy getting to know interesting people and learning about stuff we don't know much about. Keep scrolling down to get to know us better, then go on and introduce yourself at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The only constant is change. I have seen many businesses fail because they can't work through the static to find their unique value proposition. On the other hand, I have seen many businesses succeed because they anticipate market changes and take risks that move them into new territory to meet customer needs. I am most happy when I can be part of helping an individual or group embrace the unexpected to move forward. I think reinvention is the only way to stay truly relevant, innovative and ready for whatever is next.

I think modern technology has disrupted the business-as-usual model and organizations have been too slow to react. I wanted to be part of building the PureReinvention project because I believe in lifelong learning and the idea that we need to develop a discipline that encourages us to adapt and embrace change. This team and program embodies the desire to question, be curious and not be afraid to take chances and mistakes.

It just makes sense. All too often I get brought into no-win situations that could have been avoided if the industry leaders had kept their eye on how to provide for their team, their customers and/or members. You can’t provide for a team without continually evaluating what’s working and what’s not. To me, PureReinvention is intentionally questioning what you think you know about the world around you. It’s about testing historical truths to see if they still hold water; if they are still relevant and meaningful. It’s about simplifying your focus and creating new, continuous momentum so that everyone wins. It’s energizing. It’s forward-facing. It’s constant. It’s the way it should be.
