“I take pride in being a change agent. As Chief Creative Officer of The 3% Conference, I directed all of the creative teams, shaped the program curriculum, courted sponsors, planned events, moderated panels, and ultimately tripled the organization’s impact well in advance of #MeToo. As the founder of Speed Mentoring, I helped people get advice and hack business problems in record time – in San Francisco, Austin, New York, and London. My greatest contribution, however, is helping fill the industry pipeline with business ready students who can’t wait to re-shape the industry to reflect the people it markets to.”
