Norm Murray, CEO

As the CEO of nStratagem.com and a Culture Architect, I specialise in driving culture transformation, talent retention, and leadership development through the strategic integration of AI, data science, and decision science solutions. My approach combines a deep understanding of organisational dynamics with cutting-edge technological tools to foster resilient and adaptive corporate cultures.

My Core Expertise:

Culture Transformation: Crafting and implementing strategies that reshape organisational culture to enhance engagement, productivity, and innovation.

Leadership Development: Coaching leaders to navigate uncertainty and drive strategic initiatives with confidence and agility.
AI and Data Science Solutions: Leveraging AI, data science, and decision science to provide actionable insights and optimise decision-making processes.

Thought Leadership:

As an Uncertainty Expert and Strategy Coach, I guide organisations through complex challenges and uncertain environments, helping them to thrive in dynamic markets. I am also the author of the weekly newsletter “The Nexus of Technology + Culture + Leadership + Talent Today,” where I explore the intersection of technological advancements and their impact on organisational culture, leadership and talent.

I am passionate about transforming the way companies operate, empowering leaders, and creating a future where technology and human ingenuity work hand-in-hand to achieve extraordinary outcomes.

My leadership portfolio includes managing multimillion-dollar budgets and stewarding multibillion-dollar funds and assets within top-tier global corporations. My entrepreneurial ventures span numerous sectors such as Oil & Gas, Engineering, Banking & Finance, Healthcare, IT, Education, Insurance, Retail, Law, Power, Sports, Shipping, Transport, and Government. These experiences have not only fortified my versatility but have also cemented my reputation as a leader capable of driving significant business and economic projects worldwide.

I have been instrumental in pioneering initiatives at the intersection of Economics, Psychology, and Social Change in locales as varied as Canada, the UK, and the Middle East. My role as a ‘Super-Integrator’ in major culture change and Employee Value Proposition (EVP) projects showcases my unique ability to synergise internal teams, leadership, and external consultants to achieve strategic objectives while maintaining consistency and momentum.

An accomplished author, I penned the seminal “The Employee Psychological Wellbeing Playbook For Leaders,” a vital resource that enhances organisational culture, employee value, and leadership effectiveness. My authenticity, boundless energy, entrepreneurial spirit, and unwavering commitment to values and excellence are the cornerstone of both my professional achievements and personal ethos.

Trained as an Olympic-level basketball player, I possesses the relentless determination, skill, and perseverance required for peak performance—a mindset I bring to every client engagement. With formal education spanning the UK, USA, and Canada,

I am not only a leader in my field but also a relentless advocate for the transformative power of leadership, strategic insight and technology in fostering organisational and leadership success.
