Home / Lyndon Frearson: Turning Remote Living into an Advantage In Central Australia and the Pacific

Lyndon Frearson is the head of Ekistica, a consulting firm, that tries to work with people in remote areas to fulfill their goals.  More than that, he is trying to export the knowledge learned from these remote areas back to larger communities and abroad. His insights on balancing mission and profitability, broad/narrow goals, and organizational development are exceptionally instructive.
