  • 1 in 7 Americans works in sales and marketing - and increasingly, so do the other 6. The volatility of our modern business environment and the rapid growth of automation mean that only the most human of skills - in this case, that of influencing others - will provide you job security and an ability to add value no matter what happens in your professional career.
  • As computers, software, AI, robots, and other forces of automation rapidly replace rote, routine workers, the skill of good decision-making will only become more and more valuable - teaching that skill is a primary focus of this program. One of our mantras is “we don’t teach anything you can Google”
