In Case You Missed It

Last week’s episode was a great dive into an amazing mind. We had a multi-talented, multi-faceted man – a leader, speaker, innovator, and most importantly, a “connector“! He works to connect people not only in the Technology sector but in the leadership space as well. Navigate the career and story of Kirk Nugent here.
