Lo­ca­tion: Cape Town, South Africa / Port­land, Oregon Age: 50 Bio: Grant is the found­ing ed­i­tor of Real Lead­ers ( Real-Lead­ers.com), the world's first sus­tain­able busi­ness and lead­er­ship magazine that pro­motes bet­ter busi­ness for a bet­ter planet. He's also a best-sell­ing au­thor and de­signer.

Skype: I in­ter­view celebri­ties and busi­ness lead­ers around the world, and see­ing each other makes a big dif­fer­ence to the qual­ity of the dis­cus­sion. Ci­tyMap­s2Go Pro Off­line Map: This amaz­ing app has helped me find my way around new cities and coun­tries. I preload my meet­ings and events on the map and use off­line GPS to walk, drive, or run to my next ap­point­ment. Uber: Uber is per­fect for get­ting from the air­port to your hotel in a foreign coun­try, and it's a much bet­ter op­tion than rent­ing a car and try­ing to find your own way around. Uber driv­ers some­times have great sto­ries and give you an in­stant sense of the lo­cal cul­ture. Voice Memos: When I con­duct Skype in­ter­views or come across some­one in­trigu­ing on the go, I record them us­ing the built-in Voice Memos app to fo­cus on the dis­cus­sion and get the tran­scrip­tion done later. Eye con­tact is im­por­tant in an in­ter­view; you don't want to scrib­ble on a notepad for 30 min­utes. Google An­a­lyt­ics: Our web­site is a key part of our magazine strat­egy and I like to use Google An­a­lyt­ics to keep an eye on who's read­ing what, in which coun­try, and which sto­ries are most pop­u­lar. I've watched the en­tire North­east­ern US light up on our opi­oid ad­dic­tion story—stats can tell a story too. Google Trans­late: With the help of this app, I once had a whole con­ver­sa­tion with an Ital­ian nun in a monastery in Rome—de­spite not know­ing Ital­ian! Also, this app is good for trans­lat­ing road and sub­way signs. Promp­tS­mart Pro: Shuf­fling pa­pers dur­ing a speech is so ‘90s. I use this voice-ac­ti­vated teleprompter app to au­to­mat­i­cally scroll through my speech while ad­dress­ing an au­di­ence. It pauses when you stop speak­ing and starts again when you talk. It's bril­liant for creat­ing a nat­u­ral-sound­ing pre­sen­ta­tion with­out any fin­ger-scrolling dis­trac­tions.
