Teacher, Leader, Coach

If there is anything that I have observed over the past 15+ years of teaching in the University environment and many years teaching in industry, it is that people want to learn from someone who has “walked the walk” and “talked the talk.” They want new concepts presented in a well organized, personalized, simple to understand manner.  This is exactly my style of teaching for all those I am privileged to train .

All of my courses are founded on my personal journey and experiences from engineer to company president :

  • 28 years of developing, managing and launching new medical imaging products and services for Philips Healthcare, a multibillion dollar company.  These products span the gamut from basic xray systems, cardiac catheterization labs, CT, MR to other complex high-tech imaging systems.  My final role at Philips was Vice President of Marketing earning the prestigious Presidential Award for innovating several new highly profitable business ventures.

  • Mentoring and Developing high potential leaders for tomorrow.

  • President, Sectra North America, a leading provider of Healthcare Information Systems.

 What learners 
and professionals are saying 

"Tom has been instrumental in providing translatable teaching to his students, including  such courses as Strategy and Innovation. The reason for Tom’s winning of this new award is perhaps, best articulated by himself:  “What I strive for in each and every course I have taught and will teach at UNH is a picture of what healthcare in about 5 years might look like, how we get there and how each student fits in.”,

Acting Dean of School of Health Sciences at the University of New Haven. 2022
