From operations to growth strategies, I help companies scale through the implementation of strategies that leverage data and digital technologies.
Digital transformation educator & advisor.
I joined the MBA program at the Wharton School of Business in 1999, just as the dot.com bubble starting expanding exponentially. I interned for a startup that raised and spent $80 million in funding in under 3 years. It was an exciting time, a reality check for the business world, and for me an excellent learning experience,
Great companies, built on solid foundations, don’t become obsolete overnight. They understand the need to evolve, to harness new technologies, defend against disruptive threats, and sometimes transform themselves into the disruptor.
I work with some of the most highly regarded university faculty in the discipline of digital technology and digital transformation. I help transfer knowledge from faculty research to business leaders through online courses in digital marketing, digital transformation, and disruptive technologies. I’m also developing my thoughts, opinions and ideas in these subject areas. I share these thoughts in my blog.
