He is the author of a number of books, and the one he is best known for with 90,000 copies sold is Do More Great Work. However, the one he’s proudest of is End Malaria, a collection of articles about Great Work from thought leaders that’s raised about $400,000 for Malaria No More and reached #2 on also organized the Great Work MBA, a virtual conference featuring 30 world class speakers and which had more than 10,000 registered participants.All of this is done as founder and Senior Partner of Box of Crayons, a company that helps organizations do less Good Work and more Great Work.
