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.

Today’s guest brings over 20 years of strategic leadership experience to companies focused on improving people’s lives. When this podcast was recorded he was the Chief Communications and Advocacy Officer at GLSEN, the nation's leading education organization focused on ensuring safe and affirming schools for all students. He recently founded JMart Strategies were he works with clients using his experience as a strategist, change agent, and turnaround specialist.

Prior to GLSEN, he was the Vice President of Strategic Communications at Sesame Workshop, was a Senior Consultant for Teach for America, and a Senior Program Officer for Policy and Advocacy at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

My guest also had the honor of working for Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, first as the Communications Director for the Executive Office of Health and Human Services, and then as the Governor’s Press Secretary.

We connected because he and I were both accepted into LeadBoston, he is an alum from the class of 2004. LeadBoston is an 11-month experiential executive education program, that focuses on the inner workings of Boston and socially responsible leadership.

Please join me in welcoming Juan Martinez.
