I help Startups grow into Big Companies, and Big Companies to be more like Startups.
I've spent the past 19 years working with startups + Big Companies focused on creating new growth opportunities via partnerships and new lines of business.
I was the Vice President of Business Development & Services at WeWork, and prior to that Head of Business Development at SumAll. I played a variety of roles in Marketing, BD, and Partnerships over a long career at American Express and got my start slinging chemicals at Dow. I also started a social cooking events company called Hot Pot Culinary Events, but that's a whole 'nother story.
I have taught workshops to thousands of students and written a best-selling book called What, Exactly, Is Business Development.
I am currently the Founder and CEO of Firneo, a community-building company that helps people and companies thrive in the future of work.
Here's how I can help
My first book, What, Exactly, Is Business Development: A Primer on Getting Deals Done, was a best-selling new release on Amazon.
I help companies from early stage startups to Fortune 100 companies focus on innovation, sustainable growth, and winning partnerships.
I've taught thousands of professionals how to do Business Development and Partnerships the right way, and offer a variety of programs for corporate training.
