“A life well-lived contributes to the
well-being of others.”

- Ron Kaufman

The Man

A Family of Educators

I come from a family of teachers, mentors, counselors, and guides. Grandma Bea taught kindergarten for 40 years. My mother taught values clarification in high school for 20. My father’s an engineer who adores teaching people about what he’s invented as much as the inventing itself. And my role in this ongoing journey? Encouraging people all over the world with education for well-being of humanity.

The Spirit of the Game

“The Spirit of the Game” in Ultimate Frisbee holds players accountable for their behavior on and off the field. It’s a good rule for play – and for life. I organized flying disc tournaments and festivals in Europe, China, India, Russia and the United States, earning friends all over the world and a spot in the “Ultimate Hall of Fame” I’m known as one of the “Johnny Appleseeds” who took the Ultimate sport worldwide.

An Ambassador of Joy

On the Frisbee field I learned with others to play well together on small scale. As a student of history, it’s clear we are still learning to live well together on a large scale. Humanity has long-standing traditions of misunderstanding, mistrust, and conflict. Hardly the spirit of the game I think we should be playing. As a global educator, I will bring you new insights, ideas, and invitations to live a better life and create a better world.

At Home on the Reef

More than 2000 dives since 1976 has made me at home in the sea and relaxed in changing tides. We live together in a greater whole, discovering our connections to each other. I met a natural mermaid, my wife Jen, on Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia. Our “hobby within the hobby” is to leave each reef a little better than we found it. It’s an underwater version of what we aim to do with our lives on the surface, too.

Engaging Global Citizen

For 40 years I have been on a mission to improve the world. The vision sustaining me is a world in which everyone is empowered and inspired to excel in service. To realize this vision, I’ve worked with businesses in every industry and with schools, governments, and associations. Each of us is wonderfully distinct, yet we are extraordinarily alike. How we learn to listen to, care about, and respect each other are the keys to our well-being.

Uplifting Service Expert

uplifting service expert Ron Kaufman

I moved to Singapore in 1990 to help develop a national service quality training program. I created courses, built bootcamps, gave speeches, wrote books, and became a Master Trainer. Today, I feel a deep sense of responsibility to teach everyone who wants to serve better, care more, and love life. In this era of great transformation, we can create the world together.

The Journey Home

For 40 years I have been on a mission to improve the world. The vision sustaining me is a world in which everyone is empowered and inspired to excel in service. To realize this vision, I’ve worked with businesses in every industry and with schools, governments, and associations. Each of us is wonderfully distinct, yet we are extraordinarily alike.
