Disclaimer: There are a ton of really cringe-worthy photos of me on this page. Oh, how far we have come since 2009 when the iPhone 3 was just being introduced and camcorders were the size of a loaf of bread. I have a great sense of humor – and realized that there is information on here that could potentially help someone if they can overlook the poor production quality.
Funny thing is, much of the information on the 2009 series hasn’t changed.
Good advice generally is timeless – so if any of the topics are of interest to you – or someone you know, here’s your last chance to grab a box of popcorn and perhaps pick up a few tips before they are replaced with higher quality videos.
The new series will be more executive-level focused since our company has evolved into one of the top ten boutique retained search firms exclusively in medtech, but in the meantime, perhaps one of these videos can help someone you know!
