Pro Tip

Best advice I have ever received: Be mindful of the nuance between being asked to advise and give an opinion and simply being a listening ear.


I have spent most of my career leading enterprise companies and large teams through transformation and scale. I am happy to offer advice and perspective to others early in the transformation and scale journey.
