Find an Old Gorilla


It’s a jungle out there but you are not as lost as you think you are.

Hello! My name is Bert Thornton. I’m so happy to have you as a visitor to my website. I’ll be sharing information about my book and life here, as well as offering my own thoughts and reflections on professional development.

Over the years, I have mentored hundreds of successful young and middle-aged men and women. Most of that mentoring has been one-on-one or in small groups. I have given lectures about self-development to corporate leadership groups, civic organizations and academic institutions, talking to group sizes from 4-5 individuals to several thousand.

This book is an opportunity to reach many, many more rising high achievers with a message of advice and practical strategies for the journey on the road to success.
