As the CEO of Chat With Leaders Media and Executive Partner at People-First Elevation Team, I lead a dedicated team specializing in thought leadership development, stakeholder engagement, and effective global communication. We excel in producing corporate podcasts, meetings, and events to drive customer and team member acquisition, retention, and engagement. Additionally, we provide speaker coaching to empower thought leaders within our clients' organizations.

My approach is grounded in Conscious Capitalism, fostering leaders with a values-driven, pro-capitalism perspective. I firmly believe in business's transformative power, not only as a commercial venture but as a catalyst for lasting social and generational impact.

Beyond my professional role, I cherish my most significant leadership role as a father to three children, alongside my wife Katie. This personal aspect deeply influences my professional path, aligning my business strategies with family values, faith, and community service in Atlanta, GA.

In today’s episode, Jeff Bond hosts a conversation with Farrukh Siddiqui, Founder & CEO of Defynance, and Ashvini Nirbhavne, Marketing Analyst at Defynance. Defynance refinances existing student loans through income share agreements to empower people’s financial freedom. This conversation was hosted at the TAG FinTech South 2022 Conference at the Georgia World Congress Center.

Farrukh and Ashvini talk with Jeff about the student loan debt crises, aligning your personal values and goals with the organization at which you are employed, and the hope for the younger generation to continue creating businesses that do good and be uncompromising in their work-life balance.
