Speaker Biography

As a Clinical Professor of Entrepreneurship at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business, Craig designed, developed and teaches the award-winning course called Entrepreneurial Selling, recently recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the “Top Ten” courses in the country. Craig is also the author of “What’s Your Story?”, a book that looks at how leaders and sales professionals use stories to connect, engage and inspire. In his book, Craig demonstrates the powerful impact stories have on the three most common performance challenges – leadership, strategic selling and motivation. 

Event Description

Craig will give an interactive workshop starting with a discussion of the value of building your network. He will then focus on the development of specific skill sets which can help you to expand and strength your network.
