Default text seems appropriate for my rebuilding this blog, I put this up originally when I was the marketing guy at a tech startup and did it as fast as I could with the limited knowledge I had of the technology. This was why I didn't ...

On Awards, Competitions and Membership

Awards I will start this with a totally obvious brag that I won Fusion Halifax''s Innovation Award for 2013. That got me to thinking why I enjoy taking part in awards, we all like to be recognized for the things we do and even see how we stack up against our peers but that was never my reason. Awards are, to me, a way of gaining social proof in your industry and ...

Superfans

'Whatever you want to call them, be it power users or super fans, they all basically function as brand ambassadors who just don''t work for you. Super Fans make up a very small percentage of your customer or user base, just 1%.

I had a student email me recently, concerned that they would not have a job after 4 years of university. He was wondering how one goes about making sure they get hired, so I figured I would talk more about what I actually did during university besides just getting my degree.

Networking SUCKS but the sandwiches are okay

Listening to: Bastille - Pompeii (Monsieur Adi Remix) Written at: Oxford Second Cup, Decaf was a bad decision, and the wifi is not awesome. Continued at Charlies Bar.

Don’t Get an MBA, Go Network

Last week I had the pleasure of going to a Halifax Fusion networking event. It was designed to reach out to students and give them the chance to listen to some amazing speakers. While a lot of what they said was excellent, there was one piece of advice that really stuck out for me. It was something that I’ve always privately thought, but I’d never heard the ...

Anatomy of a Coffee Meeting

I had a friend recently admit that he is looking at asking someone for a cup of coffee as he is trying to find a work-term option. The only issue is that he has never actively networked into a position.
