Premier Consultants - OD, Community-Economic Development and Real Estate Projects
As an organizational development consultant, futurist and “guerrilla entrepreneur”, with over twenty years of national and international consulting experience in the areas of: urban planning, community-economic development, philanthropic administration, public-private partnerships, and land development projects, his consultancy concentrates on providing management consulting, business development, and branding expertise to his national clientele.
His heart for empowering and positively impacting communities of color, is a major part of the expressive energy and tireless passion that’s often been credited to his work. By infusing innovative thinking and change literacy into all his projects, Walter believes that harnessing the collective energies of transformative leaders in the midst of disruptive innovations and change — will help to shorten learning curves in the “new” marketplace, that is now heavily influenced by emerging technologies, globalization and the rapid movements - across industries; towards artificial intelligence and “change”.
