About Greg Duckworth:
Greg Duckworth has spent two decades teaching people how to flip their thinking and find opportunity where others cannot. After a successful career with such notable companies as AT&T, Eastman Kodak, Microsoft and others, Greg has come to believe that the opportunity for mind-blowing success is all around us. The problem, he says, is that we get conditioned by our experience, blinded by our business models and conned by the popular media to believe our success is a product of uncontrollable conditions. Duckworth currently serves as Director of Human Resources for Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing service with a presence in 44 countries with more than 125,000 employees worldwide.
As a seasoned Human Resource Consultant having practiced in most areas of HR, Duckworth is committed to helping accelerate the natural development of his clients. His practice includes years of experience successfully leading, coaching and working inside organizations and consulting with intact teams both in the U.S. and internationally.
In addition to all the life lessons Greg has learned the hard way, he has earned a Master of Science degree in Human Resources and Training, a Master of Business Administration degree and has been awarded an accreditation as a Senior Professional of Human Resources (SPHR) from the Human Resource Certification Institute. He has been personally trained by some of the most influential, current thought leaders such as Timothy Ferriss, author of the New York Times best seller, The 4-Hour Workweek and Richard Pascale, associate Fellow of Oxford University, author and mentor to noted business author and speaker, Tom Peters. He loves spending time with his beautiful wife of 20 years and two kids, Hayden and Hunter. When he’s not consulting, Greg and his family can be found working on their mini-ranch or one of their philanthropic projects.
