James Forson spends a great deal of time near the centre of an intricate Venn diagram where management consulting, fiction writing, business writing, education governance, organic vegetables and procrastination meet.
He was born in Worcester, South Africa in 1955. His early work experience was in the mining, steel, pharmaceutical and banking industries. For the past 23 years he has been an independent management consultant. He is married to Merle. They have an adult son, Tim. They live in Johannesburg.
He likes to say that he knows very little about a great many things.
