Gordon is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading authorities on the challenge facing business leaders of creating value in dynamic, complex markets. He developed many of the original ideas about “game-changing strategy” and “competitive disruption”.  Recently he has been a keynote speaker on these topics at major business conferences in the USA, UAE, Singapore, Europe, Indonesia, and Brazil, and has advised the Prime Minister’s office in the UAE on the country’s vision for 2025.

Born, educated and still resident in Glasgow, Gordon now works extensively on a global basis.
