WPO Southern California Event

PPN 9116 2


I enjoyed my time last month with members of the Women President’s Organization. We met in Irvine, California for a half-day Master Class on the topic of ‘Re-Imagining Boundaries’. During the session participants were highly engaged in challenging themselves and each other on how to shape the future of their respective businesses for the post-Covid world.

The World's Best Hotel

 mahali mzuri


Congratulations to Jon Brown and to the whole Virgin Limited Edition team for their spectacular resort - Mahali Mzuri - being selected as the world's top hotel by Travel + Leisure's recent ranking.


I spent an invigorating stay at MM a couple of years ago and can personally attest that the recognition is well deserved. The purpose of my visit was to feature MM as a destination for my executive retreat program. The property is not only stunning, it has the perfect blend of nature & luxury, intimacy & charm.

My Chat with Vishen Lakhiani - founder of Mindvalley



It was a treat to be Vishen Lakhiani's guest on his Mindvalley podcast series recently. I consider Mindvalley to be an exemplary pioneer of knowledge sharing and lifelong learning, removing the lid off human potential.


I invite you to listen in to our conversation, which includes the impromptu application of my key principles of radical business creativity to audience members, as well as mention of how Mindvalley itself has successfully applied these principles: https://podcast.mindvalley.com/the-3-principles-of-radical-business-creativity-gabor-george-burt/

Blast from the Past



What is this handsome piece of machinery? It is none other than the fabled Trabant – the crown jewel in the portfolio of former communist cars.


These beauties are increasing rare to see on the streets, but this one is proudly parked in front of a downtown hotel in Budapest. Notice the fine features, attention to detail and irresistible color. Its special qualities prompted me to feature the Trabant in this Harvard Business Review article about customer experience design: https://hbr.org/2016/04/what-we-can-learn-from-one-of-the-worlds-most-mocked-cars


If you look closely, you will notice plants growing next to the back tire – a sign that this Trabant is comfortable where it’s at and may not be going anywhere soon.
