About the Author

John Davies was born in a little town call Kissy Mess-Mess in Freetown, Sierra Leone in 1954 and was forced into becoming a street-boy at age eight. He attended elementary school there but dropped out from grade seven when life got messier, following a long absentee record.

John later went to Liberia in 1971 to continue schooling and attended Lincoln Secretariat Institute where he took interest in book keeping & accounting. He dropped out sooner this time when things became messy and went back to Freetown.
In 1975, after failed attempts to become a permanent seafarer, John returned to Liberia with a commitment to finish schooling. He learned a great deal and had taken an interest in chess during his first failed seafaring attempts, which became a solace for his disappointment and mediocre living. The bargain he made at Lincoln to clean the school as payment for his attendance luckily worked out. John was able to graduate with an A in 1977, which propelled him to a senior book-keeper position with the world’s largest rubber plantation.
With resources at his disposal, John then enrolled with the Metropolitan College and the London Educational Association to further improve his education. Here he took up other related corresponding courses. John won the first Liberian National Chess Championship in 1980 and defended the title ten years in a row. He also became president of the Monrovia Chess Club in 1981. He worked as contractual counterpart at the Ministry of Finance and later merited the status of a public accountant and established Davies & Associates, Certified Public Accountants.
Recently John graduated with an MBA from Colorado Technical University and just started working on his Ph.D. John founded Global Alliance Solution, LLC, a consultancy firm providing strategic management services in dynamic environments for companies seeking competitive edge in global markets. The company is located on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, 20 F Street 7th Floor. Website is www.globalalliancesolution.org
