Ross is passionate about the creative potential of diversity in groups and the role that universities play in our society.

That framework is called the the Knowledge Entrepreneur (KE) Toolkit.
The KE Toolkit is fully explained in Ross's book and it forms the basis of the individual and cultural development services he offers to universities.
