John Spence is my featured guest this week. He joins me in the Business LockerRoom to discuss his essential business strategies for turning ideas into action. “Making the very complex…awesomely simple” is the catch phrase John uses, and, clearly he has been successful in doing so. Since 1994, John has presented workshops, speeches and executive coaching to more than 300 organizations worldwide, and has been a guest lecturer at over 90 colleges and universities across the United States including Harvard, Cornell, Stanford and the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania and as a special instructor for the Entrepreneurial Masters Program at MIT. He currently works with high-visibility client like Apple, Microsoft, IBM, Verizon, and AT&T, and he has authored four books, including the recently released "Awesomely Simple: Essential Business Strategies for Turning Ideas into Action". At the age of just 26, John Spence was named CEO of an international Rockefeller foundation, overseeing projects in 20 countries and reporting directly to the Chairman of the Board, Winthrop P. Rockefeller III. Three years later Inc. Magazine’s “Zinc Online” recognized him as one of America’s up and coming young business leaders. John has twice been named by Trust Across America as one of the Top 100 Business Thought Leaders in America and has been recognized by that organization on their global list of the top 100 Thought Leaders in the area of “Trustworthy Business Behavior.” X’s and O’s (with Miles Austin) Miles has another great tool to share this week: Toutapp. Learn how this impressive tool can help you accelerate your sales process and give you control over your email you've never had before!
