I Won a Million Dollars!
A true story by Glenn Thomas, CEO of ASi LLC
This is Glenn Thomas, CEO of ASi LLC, an advanced metal manufacturing
Our company recently won the Grand Prize in the 43 North Business Plan competition conceived by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and held in October 2014 in Buffalo. This competition drew almost 7,000 entrants from all 50 US states and over 90 foreign countries. It required me to present our business plan repeatedly in successive rounds. I presented before judges comprised of extremely high achievers such as CEO’s of multi-billion dollar corporations, Managing Directors of VC funds who founded Twitter, Flicker and a leading web news site, the CEO of a world renowned cancer institute, and a multi-billionaire and owner of both NFL and NHL teams.
The training I received from John Kelly at LEADSPEAK was INVALUABLE. LEADSPEAK is comprehensive, high powered training, covering topics from content preparation, opening and closing, pitch techniques, how to use humor, how to engage your audience (judges in my case) and much more. You might not win first place and a million dollars by attending LEADSPEAK, but then again, you just might. I did!!!
