The word 'Engineering' is derived from the Latin word for 'Ingenuity' which simply means creative problem-solving.

The terms of 'Success' are unique to each individual but will ultimately be the progressive realisation of some ideal, desired outcome.

On some level, we all practise engineering in life, work and business.

I apply my skills to develop leaders and help them solve performance problems to achieve top-priority individual or organisational goals.

Career Journey, Qualifications and Certifications

I've been formally trained in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering with experience working across the Caribbean, Europe and North America.

I started my career in the role of Process Improvement Specialist following a Graduate Engineer Programme at one of the largest manufacturing conglomerates in the Caribbean. 

As a prospective future General Manager in the group, I was fortunate to be trained and mentored by senior executives in all aspects of business operations, including Coca-Cola Business Systems.

Besides my  entrepreneurial experience of building tech-driven businesses, I've also been awarded various global Business and Leadership Certifications, including the Maxwell Leadership Certification in 2013.

I naturally specialise in helping Engineering, Manufacturing and Technology companies but I've supported a range of other types of organisations including some in the Financial Services sector.

My expertise, network and resources allow me to help executives and senior business leaders cement their A-Game for sustained personal excellence in pursuit of leadership and operational excellence. 

My background means that I also naturally excel at supporting the development of executives, emerging leaders and functional experts with STEM backgrounds or involvement (e.g. engineers, developers, scientists, designers, architects, economists), either directly via my public programmes or within organisations, to help them adjust and thrive in business leadership positions and master the people skills required to succeed beyond technical strengths and talents.

  • I partner with corporate executives and managers to overcome costly toxic cultures, poor engagement, low morale, poor succession and high employee turnover by unlocking leadership excellence and developing harmonious high-performance teams across their organisations. I do this by:
    1) Equipping all levels of leaders with world-class leadership models across the organisation, licensed from Dr. John C. Maxwell (INC Magazine's #1 Leadership Expert) and delivered within Life Engineer frameworks, to develop a consistent, high-performance leadership culture that drives performance and engagement;

  • I work with professionals, business owners and corporate leaders to help them achieve purpose, fulfilment, alignment, peak performance, balance and desired success in life and work by guiding the design of strategic, big-picture life plans based on individual personality, strengths, desires and vision which are then implemented via a process of reverse-engineering and ongoing coaching, training and accountability to ensure effective execution and progress.
  • Beyond my contributions to leading publications and podcasts, I help professional and business leaders to stay 'on top of their game' through public content, online courses, micro-learning workshops, webinars and communities in order to maintain the levels of growth and performance required for continued success in a world that is constantly evolving at increasing speeds.

My 7 Master Keys To Success to Leading High-Performance

"An organisation will never outperform its leaders.

From personal experience, training and observations, I believe that the 'Modern Leader' must strive to excel in these key areas in order to drive top performance:

- DREAM PURPOSEFULLY of a vision and future destination worthy of pursuit;

- THINK PRACTICALLY of strategic ways to convert vision to reality;

- LEAD PEOPLE on a journey of growth towards that clear, inspiring vision;
- LEVERAGE PROCESSES to maximise productivity and minimise human failure;
- SUSTAIN PERFORMANCE of self and others to achieve human potential;
- SOLVE PROBLEMS by eliminating their root causes to prevent recurrence;

- BE PHILANTHROPIC to the benefit of humanity alongside profitability.

The fundamentals of leadership are timeless and unchanging. The art of their application must continuously evolve in the face of ever-changing realities.

I think the Modern Leader should strive to be both creative and critical, versed in multiple disciplines like the disruptors who shaped the Renaissance era."

I work with the leadership teams of growing small to large companies to solve workforce and workflow business problems.

I have coached and equipped leaders and their teams with solutions to organisational challenges and guided the improvement of operational, sales and workforce performance.


I've been invited by the leadership teams of various training institutions, professional associations, chambers of commerce and conference organisers to serve their beneficiaries through the delivery of training presentations or keynotes in my areas of expertise.



An organisation is never any better or stronger than the person leading it.

 As the leader of a company myself, I occasionally enjoy supporting and sharing with others in this position to help them to strengthen a winning, high-performance, leader's mindset while implementing strategic skills, systems and tools required to achieve peak performance of self and team.


I began my career working as an engineering employee in the corporate world and was able to quickly advance to higher levels of managerial responsibility during that time. 

Periodically, my work supports professionals who are serious about achieving career advancement by enhancing their leadership, business and professional abilities in order to realise their full potential.

"Gallup studies show that destructive leadership and underperforming senior managers cost hundreds of billions in productivity losses annually in North America alone..."

...This is one of the major problems that I work to solve
one organisation at a time.


"Gregory is by far one of the best there is in the "Life Engineering" business. I was absolutely blown away by how impactful and authentic his presentation at the recent YLAI opening summit in Atlanta, Georgia was! I was inspired, motivated and definitely equipped to take on the task of my YLAI fellowship after listening to his presentation! Great job Sir!"

My personal mission is to make a positive global impact via my skills and leave a legacy of re-imagining the application of engineering to people and business development.

In my private time, you may find me periodically using my skills to help children prepare for future success via educational, personal development programmes and media within my Pilly Pelican brand or at I Am A Girl NGO, founded by my wife.

Prevention is better than correction. Shaping behavioural patterns is easier than breaking and reforming them. 

In my character as "Engineer Greg", I lead the design and creation of educational resources and programmes which cover the same concepts that I share with adults but delivered in a more child-friendly, fun and engaging style.

Content primarily focuses on S.T.E.M. and Personal Development topics such as:

  • Leadership & Self-Belief
  • Entrepreneurship & Financial Literacy
  • Productivity & Goal-setting
  • Communication & Teamwork
