STATEMENT OF PHILOSOPHY: I am a businessperson. An analyst. A pragmatist. The enormous social good of increased womens power is clear to me; but it is not my bailiwick. My game is haranguing business leaders about my fact-based conviction that womens increasing power – leadership skills and purchasing power – is the strongest and most dynamic force at work in the American economy today. Dare I say it as a long-time Palo Altan … THIS IS EVEN BIGGER THAN THE INTERNET! Tom Peters
