Training

In Fall, 2013, and mentoring and advising many hundreds of entrepreneurs, executives mostly in the technology, Internet, and eCommerce, I decided to develop specialized curriculum and workshops for executives, founders, and entrepreneurs.  My goal was to construct  frameworks that I had tested in my advisory roles so larger audiences could have access to some of the methodologies, ideas and leadership techniques that helped others translate their ideas into successful business and outcomes.

The results are leadership methodologies and practices that I bundled into workshops: Bend The Curve™, Minimum Viable Story™, How Good Is My Idea?™, Is Entrepreneurship Right for Me?™ and  Crowdfunding: What to Know Before Starting a Campaign . These workshops share my perspective on improving leadership and management techniques designed to empower and inspire each of us to become great leaders in our companies, organizations, workplaces, and communities.
