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.

  2. Why does the word “recruiter” often come with a negative connotation and what do good Talentpreneurs (as you call your team members) do differently that dispels preconceived notions for someone considering a working relationship with them?
  3. Why is empowering your team members important to them and to fulfilling your responsibilities as a leader?
  4. You have self-proclaimed yourself as someone who has often set unrealistic goals for yourself beyond the scope of reality. What have you learned to be the downfalls of this trait as well as the areas of opportunity to coach your team members on how to be a top performer?
