The Long Version:

As a career sales and marketing executive & leader, I've worked with a wide variety of organizations and peers, training individuals on both the hard and soft skills required to excel in their career.

On a professional level, I've worked within all size companies, and I've sold and marketed (as well as lead teams that have sold and marketed) to some of the most iconic F500 / F100 brands throughout my career.

I'm fortunate  to have over 100+ of my thoughts and insights on sales, marketing, technology, business and entrepreneurship published in outlets such as Forbes, Wall Street Journal, Hackernoon, The Startup and others.

I currently run a global software sales and marketing team and I also host the Success Story podcast where I interview and unpack the playbooks of inspirational people, mentors and leaders.

The courses you'll be taking through Udemy are either taught by myself or a highly knowledgeable subject matter expert. I've built a team of trainers, in hopes of training the Udemy community on technology, sales, marketing, business and entrepreneurship, to give you an edge, and help you level up in your personal life, professional career or entrepreneurial venture.

Over my career, both myself and some of the trainers you'll work with have trained thousands of students, both in professional and non-professional settings. I hope you can benefit from some of our collective experience and find these courses both interesting & useful.

Happy Learning.
