I am fascinated by leadership and find people’s actions and behavior very interesting.
I have really appreciated and been influenced by Dale Carnegie’s “How to win friends and influence people” and Steven Covey’s “Seven habits of highly effective people”. Of late, Seth Godin has become my morning coffee (where I come from, we take our coffee very seriously) and I enjoy Stephen Colbert’s comedy and style.
Professionally, I’m a Senior Manager in the IT department of a global bio-pharmaceutical company, CSL Behring and I enjoy not only my job, but also the people I work with. I have a great interest in improving business processes and the use of technology to spur business growth.
I am skilled in strategy, service operations and business law. I take great interest in entrepreneurship (which is a form of leadership) and marketing (which is another form of leadership, particularly the “influencing” skill).
I love cricket! I read about it, play it and can talk about the game and its strategies at length. I represent the BOCC (British Officers’ Cricket Club) in Philadelphia since 2000.
Since 2013, I volunteer at NFTE (www.nfte.org), where I teach entrepreneurial skills to high school students.
Personally, I’m the sole contributor and operator of Kay Leadership Academy, the site you are on right now!
