Simple Formula for Success

Rampworth is a collective of independents. We all have our own areas of passion and that’s reflected in our individual practices, but we aligned on one thing… it’s our job to help you maximize value by keeping your thinking ahead of the change-curve to avoid risk and execute on the most compelling opportunities. All of our engagements are customized, but 2 things remain constant:
1. We have a clear focus on driving enterprise value and work as a member of the senior team with full accountability for performance (and doing everything possible to avoid the role of consultant).
2. We like to work ourselves out of the job. Unlike traditional consultants, who build in hooks for future work, we focus on a sustainable transition, delivering training and building internal competencies as an integral part of every project. This approach drives down cost, reduces execution risk and ensures that a value focus becomes deeply embedded across your organization.

Transformative leaders know how to cut through the noise and identify compelling opportunities... they also know how to convince people to give them the resources they need to execute… It's the innovators super-power and I'm on a mission to help put that power in the hands of entrepreneurs and enterprise leaders wherever I can.

I am a strategist specialized in transformative innovations. I help passionate leaders create strategies that leverage the forces of disruption to their advantage.  Much of my work involves online marketplaces, but that’s only because they are one of the most disruptive forces of our time. I'm all-in on using agile-strategy to keep the vision and strategy ahead of the change-curve, and on maximizing stakeholder alignment to ensure the organization is able to sense and react quickly to shifting forces and competitive pressures.

If I have a super-power, it's the ability to help leadership teams shed noise and align around where to place bets (and why). Oh yeah… I’m also pretty good at distilling the thinking into a compelling story to help get people on-board.

ANCIENT HISTORY - I'm a seasoned entrepreneur.  I've built and sold three companies and co-led two global turnarounds.  I’ve worked in multiple industries (manufacturing / contracting / tech / clean energy) on four continents, so I default to a global viewpoint and a first-principles approach.

A Chinese national by birth, and now a Canadian citizen, Eric has an enormous pride for both countries and effortlessly bridges between the two cultures. His formal training is in medicine, where he practiced in his early career, but his love of business has pulled him away in the form of 4 start-ups and 1 turnaround. An influential network of senior government officials and business executives in China, Eric's experience includes privatization of state owned business as well as negotiating countless formal agreements with top state owned enterprises (SOE's) and private companies.  An astute observer, Eric has developed a comprehensive understanding of China culture and business practices, legislative compliance, and government operations, and it is from this base that he has helped numerous western company's develop a successful market entry strategy for China.
