I am leading a Meetup Group called Company of Rogue Academics, an innovation-oriented platform that ignites passionate individuals who have deep interests in redefining career/academic success and taking their intellectual capital to the next level. The group aims to foster intellectual discussions, share cross-disciplinary knowledge, and reflect upon productive mental models to equip its members to grow their networks and approach decision-making as a free agent.
What role does a personal balance sheet have when considering careers or career direction?
What are your chief assets that make you uniquely competitive?
What does academic scholarship teach you about business strategy?
This is an interactive discussion on how to use principles of business strategy to carve your career path. Explore how learning to valuate a business can transform your approach to career decision-making. You will also enjoy an inspiring live performance from Kevin Eng, an electrical engineer turned musician.
Expect to learn how to look at your professional offerings through the eyes of an investor, which assets drive equity value of your business and how to apply these principles to your career search, and how to identify assets that are underdeveloped.

MUSICAL GUEST BIO
