Put people first, embrace change, execute, tell the real story.
As an entrepreneur, I’ve learned in my early career to build, manage and sell a product.
For people to care about your business, you need to FIRST care about them. It is quintessential to put people first in everything we do. It allows us not only to build people up (and sleep at night) but also to get ahead as companies.
You can’t just work IN the business. You need to have the focus to work ON the business as well. We must constantly iterate, validate and orchestrate.
Execution is everything. Once your people are engaged, delivery is what sets you apart.
Tell the real story, in the right way, at the right time. Don’t just share any story. Share the uncomfortable truth. Be relevant and authentic. It’s what binds it all together in this digital day and age.
Currently building an online marketing platform for SMBs. Also doing consulting work for startups who need help with their product management or large organizations who are struggling with their digital transformation.
8 years, market fit and scalability
8 years, 80% of marketing technology is snake oil
12 years, people buy an emotion
8 years, it's about people; not technology
I’m a business creative that comes from a background of sales, entrepreneurship, and operations. I’ve always had a knack for innovation and I’m constantly learning to try and keep up with the tsunami that will be the fourth industrial revolution.
I talk too much, I can get distracted and I sometimes forget to unwind.
French is my first language. I scored at 98th percentile in University.
I’m perfectly fluent in English.
I’ve studied 4 years of Latin and have basic reading skills in Spanish.
I also have a major in Arabic studies but haven’t practiced in quite a while.
I started my first business in my mid teens and built my first product in my early twenties. I’ve had management roles since in product, sales, and marketing mostly in the media, hospitality and software industries.
These are some of the classes I’ve taken over the years to keep sharpening the saw.
Some of the talented people that I feel very privileged to surround myself with and to call on for inspiration, support, networking or pure talent. As Jim Rohn put it: “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” And I have been blessed to find myself in such fine company.
Here are some of the thinkers and tinkerers that had a major impact on me over the years. Check out their books and drop me a line if you’d like to discuss any of the work, concepts, and applications. Am always happy to revisit any of these fine publications.
Here are some ideas the tribe and I are currently thinking about, exploring, validating or working on. Feel free to explore and connect… Just click on any image to load project details.
Go ahead and book some time together. Am always happy to meet with passionate, curious and driven people that strive to deliver real value and make a difference.
