On the Schmooze

Welcome to On the Schmooze, a weekly podcast that features a mix of interviews and solo shows. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. Interviews are with talented people from different fields. We explore how they built strong networks and overcame challenges on their way to becoming successful leaders. I identify a key take-away from each interview, something you can put into action that week that you’ll benefit from for years to come. In the show notes I provide resources to help you get started. Solo shows are shorter episodes where I share practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. Podcast inspired by Dorie Clark, Pat Flynn, Jonny Nastor, Dale Carnegie.

I'm excited to have with me today, a member of LeadBoston class of 2015. LeadBoston is an executive education program, that focuses on the inner workings of Boston and socially responsible leadership. I'm proud to be a member of this year's class as well. My guest is also a member of the ONEin3 Council (relaunched as Spark Boston), a project of the Mayor of Boston, that aims to maximize the talents of Boston's 20-34 year old demographic, which is one third of the city's total population.

He is a consultant focused on creating opportunities for women and people of color within the world of real estate development. He works with developers to craft and monitor their diversity and resident employment objectives. He designed and manages a multi-year commercial real estate internship partnership between a real estate developer and the University of Massachusetts. He works at KAGE, a multifaceted consulting firm with expertise in diversity solutions. Prior to joining KAGE, he cofounded SportYourself, a new media company focused on creating a dynamic video platform.
