Meet our Guest - Michael McCoy

A strategic leader for programs in talent acquisition marketing, and brand management. Seeking a new opportunity to build a brand. I am interested in opportunities that allow me to build upon my leadership skills, grow the value in a business and cultivate community. The experiences I have had in my career have been focused around developing strategic programs for sales volume growth, revenue per invoice, and client acquisition. These skills have been stretched across retail, wholesale, and non-profit businesses but have a focus on actionable results. Currently, via LinkedIn learning working to complete the Six Sigma Green Belt, and Project Management course. I have experience using Six Sigma fundamentals in mapping, process improvement, workflow development. I also have 3 years of project management experience managing projects of all size, with multiple contributors and team members. I was also on the board of the Nashville Junior Chamber of Commence as the Alumni Engagement Chair. The engagement of young professionals into leadership roles is very important to me, and believe to the vitality of corporations across the world. I love to talk to non-profit leaders about their junior boards and engagement of their target audience.

WHAT TO DO - Business Networking Guide

Tip for our eBook: "Wear a name tag and place it "high and right." A name tag is great for many—if not most—networking events. You can always take it off after arriving if you discover that you do not need to wear one. Your name tag is not a boutonniere, and you are not attending a prom. The name tag should be worn on the right-side lapel of your suit coat or an equivalent area. The reason for this location is so that people can see your name at the same time they shake your hand.what"
