About The Instructor
Jeffrey’s work on the new mindsets and methods that are redefining leadership in the 21st century has won 2 national and 2 international Stevie Awards (the Oscars of business awards) from both the American Business Awards (ABA) and the International Business Awards associations. (IBA)


He has more than 35 years of front line, “in the trenches” experience as a serial entrepreneur; the past 15 of which has been devoted to helping scores of owners and executives adapt their leadership methods to meet the challenges of the modern worker in the modern economy.


In addition, Jeffrey also co-founded a 21st century think tank and spent 5 years as the President and Chair of the Tech-Collective; an industry collaborative focused upon developing workforce development, entrepreneurship development and economic development initiatives for Rhode Island’s technology sector.


Jeffrey’s leadership expertise has been tapped by 3 Rhode Island governors to co-design and serve on various industry related licensing boards and study commissions. In addition, he has served as an advisor to political leaders throughout the state for more than two decades.


His work focuses upon helping leaders to create the collaborative conditions which unleash the collective genius and energies from previously untapped pools of human capital and build healthy and resilient cultures.


He is a stage 4 cancer “thriver”, a Reiki master and a dedicated student of Toaist, Eckist and Native American spiritual teachings all of which has helped to define his signature method of Conscious Leadership.


He has dedicated his life to helping like minded servant leaders to learn the mindsets, models and methods that uncover, unlock and unleash more of the human potential that surrounds them for the benefit of everyone involved.
“My biggest takeaway from last year’s Conscious Leaders Conference was that LEADERSHIP is not about a title. Rather, real leadership has a lot more to do with working on ourselves as human beings. Jeff helped us all dig deeper to do the inner work that leads us to become better people and better leaders. This was a true self-development journey. I recommend this conference to anyone who is in search of leadership excellence.”

Bob Salvas, Consultant, Entrepreneur, Professional Development Manager, Rhode Island Builders Association

“The Conscious Leadership Conference was a professionally enriching and personally fulfilling experience for me and for all of the participants who attended the retreat. The conference was unique in that it presented cutting-edge knowledge; a practical “how to use” approach with an openness that nourished both the insights and spirits of attendees. After the end of the conference, as I drove away, I felt privileged to have watched the personal and professional growth of the attendees. Jeff, thank you for such a satisfying and enriching conference experience.”

Jack Beauregard, Consultant, Serial Entrepreneur, CEO The Wisdom Company

“I had been through many trainings in business school, during my corporate career and had also given many trainings as a consultant. What emerged from this conference was not just a skillset to be absorbed and practiced or even a way of thinking, but an awareness, and a way to perceive what was happening around you in an organization or a community. I highly recommend this training for those looking to train high potential future leaders and those already in leadership looking to elevate their skills to the next level.”
