Teaching history

UWL is my first full time teaching role. I taught advertising strategy at the Miami Ad School. I've also conducted many workshops for clients and sometimes work as a paid speaker on marketing and branding topics.

In addition to teaching, I help individuals and organizations learn, create and grow. For companies with fewer than 250 employees, I serve as a catalyst on growth initiatives. For larger firms I serve as a speaker, teacher and marketing strategist. Engagements are typically initiated by top executives; most projects last 3-6 months. I've worked with more than 100 clients over the years, about two-thirds of whom market and sell to other businesses.

Between client assignments I read, write, walk and talk with a wide variety of people. Clients say I provide food for thought and simplify complexity. I use mental models to imagine new possibilities and ask open questions that lead to better results.

PARTIAL CLIENT LIST: City of Minneapolis; Experience Engineering; Good Leadership Enterprises; Hormel; IBM; Korn Ferry Hay; Mindware; Navigate Forward; Palomino; PETCO; Pizza Luce; Research International; RSM; Science Museum of Minnesota; Suncor; Snap Fitness; Summit Brewing; Twill; United Way; Wellington Security; Wilson Learning; Yoplait.

Gallup Strengths: (1) Ideation; (2) Strategic; (3) Learning; (4): Self Assurance; (5) Futuristic. On the Big Five Personality Factors, I test at the 99th percentile on openness to new ideas.
