Vladislav Davidzon has devoted his entire professional career to developing and launching innovative brands across a number of industries. As a leader, businessman and environmentalist, he is dedicated to using his skills and experience to build socially responsible enterprises and his record has show exemplary success on many levels.
A peace advocate and technical professional, Vladislav’s path began at an early age. He was trained at the Franklin Covey Company, studying works like Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and other relevant material. These concepts would stick with Vladislav, applied to all aspects of his personal and professional work.
Vladislav is also appreciative of the many opportunities he’s had to work alongside leading thinkers and educators over the years. This includes Bill Mollison (the founder of Permaculture), Joanna Macy (the founder of The Work That Reconnects), Marshall Rosenberg (the founder of Non-Violent Communication), Larry Korn (translator of the One Straw Revolution book by Masanobu Fukuoka), and many others.
He started his first consulting business while still in high school. It was a learning experience, of course, and would have an incredible impact on all his business ventures going forward. This includes ThinkHost, Inc. Founded in 1999 by Vladislav, ThinkHost is a debt free, privately owned progressive company that provides high end website hosting services. It is powered 100 percent with renewable energy.
Vladislav built the company on three basic principles: honesty, integrity and trust. With the help of his dedicated staff, Vladislav put forth a demonstrated commitment to social change, environmental responsibility and community support. The web host was the first and leading carbon neutral company, revolutionizing the information technology industry forever. ThinkHost grew into a global leader, becoming profitable in just a month after its launch. Vladislav eventually sold ThinkHost to a conglomerate that he is proud to say has an intensive sense of social responsibility.
The next evolution in Vladislav’s professional life came after participating in a bicycle tour in America. It prompted him to found Common Circle Expeditions — Sustainable Energy in Motion. This was a groundbreaking enterprise. A bicycle touring company that introduced clients to sustainable living and organic food production while riding their cycles on the back roads of Oregon and Hawaii, and visiting organic farms and intentional communities.
Ultimately, Common Circle Expeditions was a resounding success. The program had an incredible impact on many of the participants. There was an overwhelmingly positive response with many participants citing the program as a deciding factor that led them to make significant changes in their lives. They wanted to make better decisions about sustainable living and living healthier.
Vladislav continued to focus on socially responsible leadership development. He launched the Regenerative Leadership Institute. With students coming from New Zealand, China, Mexico and other countries around the globe, the Regenerative Leadership Institute was a sustainable living and permaculture design school. Utilizing strategies and works engineered by Vladislav, the school revolutionized the permaculture educational industry through the reformatting of internationally recognized permaculture training. With concentrated nature immersion programs in sustainable design and living, the Institute made these trainings relevant to mainstream America. The goal was to change lives by offering pragmatic skills and a desire for a more sane, beautiful, thriving and sustainable planet.
Vladislav is fluent in three languages and has traveled around the world extensively. His entrepreneurial spirit strong as ever, Vladislav currently lives in the San Francisco Bay area. When not working on his writings or latest business ventures, Vladislav spends his time biking, hiking and enjoying the many nature preserves in California. After ThinkHost, Common Circle Expeditions — Sustainable Energy in Motion and the Regenerative Leadership Institute, it’s not surprising to say many are waiting to see what comes next from this visionary businessman.
