If you’re looking for a consultant that’s skilled in prune harvesting, peach sorting, and the finer points of bin carrier operation, you’ve come to the right place. Hello? Any takers? Ford grew up and labored on his family farm in rural Northern California.
Since then, Ford’s well-earned callouses have been replaced by flipchart marker ink. Inky hands garner less street cred. As a veteran trainer, facilitator, coach, and consultant he’s hopping between an interesting set of clients – primarily pharma/biotech and high tech – around the globe. Ford’s self-worth is too heavily tied to annual air mileage accruals and hotel status levels.
Ford did expect to be bettered by his children, but not quite so soon. At 9, Jude’s baseball pitching form and speed are superior. Eleven-year-old Elle has over 37 million video views of her weightlifting and gymnastics accomplishments.
Ford holds and M.A. in ethnic studies and a B.A. in economics with a minor in African American studies – all from the University of California at Berkeley. He hails from Albany, CA, making a life there with his wife, daughter, and son.
