An honors graduate from Yale, Workman is an award-winning journalist, speaker, consultant and former writer for statesmen ranging from Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt to Nelson Mandela. In Africa and Asia he helped forge the landmark report of the World Commission on Dams, led research safaris, and advised businesses, aid agencies, and conservation organizations on water resources. Based on his seven year study of indigenous coping mechanisms in the Kalahari Desert, Workman wrote the critically acclaimed Heart of Dryness: How the Last Bushmen Can Help Us Endure the Coming Age of Permanent Drought. When he was blacklisted from Botswana for his work, he returned to the U.S. where he launched a business venture, SmartMarkets, which partners with utilities to let end users own, save and trade shares in water and energy efficiency.
