Ready to learn about change management?
Across Change was built to be the change management resource you can trust.
Cameron’s work & study
Here’s a glimpse into the mosaic that has informed Cameron’s thinking about the nature of change and change management.
Through its work in 122 countries immunizing over 2.5 billion children, Rotary has played a leading role in reducing global polio cases by 99.9 percent. For several years, Cameron was selected as a “HistoryMaker” to help Rotary close the final gap.
From Cadillac and Jameson Irish Whiskey to the media organizations you know and trust, Cameron has worked with a variety of global brands on partnership development and awareness campaign execution.
Social Good Fellow
Among 25 fellows selected by the United Nations Foundation [email protected] campaign, in partnership with Walgreens, Cameron worked with a cross-sector group of change leaders.
Director & Consultant
With an MFA in Creative Writing and over a decade of experience working on internal and external communications campaigns for startups, nonprofits, and well-known brands, Cameron sees strategic communications as the unheralded hero of successful change management.
Excellence in Scholarship
Cameron keeps a foot in both the corporate and academic worlds. He received an Executive MBA from the University of San Francisco, where he received the Excellence in Scholarship Award, an honor based on academics and personal values given to one student each year.
A recipient of the Daniel Pearl Investigative Journalism Fellowship (an honor given to one journalist each year) and a grant from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, Cameron’s international coverage on some of the world’s most pressing issues has given him a front-row seat on how change happens.
About Across Change
The more Cameron studied change management, the more he believed it would increasingly play a critical role in creating more resilient, equitable organizations. But this belief caused several challenges to stand in sharp relief.
The resource gap
Students and practitioners struggle to find organized, in-depth change management resources. What exists is often inadequate, biased, or gated by consultancies driven to get your email. Insightful change management information is often either in expensive textbooks (including several over $1,000) or behind inaccessible academic journal paywalls.
The lack of diversity
At the more accessible surface, it can seem as though white men are the only leading thinkers on change management. Behind this curtain, however, is a stunningly diverse array of researchers. The change management field will not unlock its full potential until it highlights new voices and embraces diversity.
Enter Across Change
Across Change was built to cut through the consultancy bias, the scattered and expensive resources, and the lack of diversity. It seeks to address these systemic issues by democratizing change management information so change leaders everywhere are more equipped and empowered. Across Change is an ambitious project that will forever be a work-in-progress.
Cameron & Change
In his own words
Like many, the traumatic events of my childhood still impact my daily life. In April 2013, I attended Zen master Thích Nhất Hạnh’s Applied Ethics for Educators retreat in Ayutthaya, Thailand. The focus was on pursuing inner change and exploring the infinite connections between how deep inner work relates to change in our external environments. The retreat set me on a path to healing I couldn’t have imagined otherwise. Since then, I’ve been using mindfulness-based practices to pursue personal inner change and to help thousands of others do the same.
I’ve had the privilege as an international journalist to focus on human rights and social innovation. This fusion granted me countless opportunities to learn from and occasionally contribute to how change agents in various sectors around the world create positive sustainable change. I’ve spent time with a diverse array of individuals and organizations leading serious, sometimes life-or-death change initiatives — including educators and policymakers in Ethiopia, farmers and business leaders in Myanmar, survivors and activists throughout the United States, and the change leaders driving some of today’s most impact-focused organizations.
I’ve served as an educator in an array of environments and communities — most recently with the University of San Francisco (faculty profile) where I work with graduate-level communications students. I’ve taught in the educational systems of reservations, universities, in the criminal justice system, and online. Teaching gives me a continuously fascinating and wide-ranging look into how and why change is either resisted or embraced. This experience, combined with my study in the arts (MFA) and business (Executive MBA), allows me to see change management from an intersectional, interdisciplinary perspective — the lack of which, I believe, is a critical factor why many change initiatives fail.
What it all means
All of this — combined with the launching of Across Change, which has demanded that I stay informed on the latest change management literature and interview some of the world’s leading change management researchers — has built me into a change thinker capable of going beyond antiquated, one-size-fits-all change frameworks and into in-depth explorations of the unique needs of each organization.
