Chuck Johnson

Michael has a terrific combination of skill sets - deep publishing experience, strong editorial and writing capabilities, and a passion for ... peeking around the corner to use his experience to help predict what is next. He is a conscientious and thoughtful thinker, and understands and is respectful of the importance of every component in the value stack - whether that stack happens to be a product, brand or company.

Jeff Shelstad
We worked together  •  VP/General Manager - College of Professional Studies, Capella University. Previously Co-founder, Flat World Knowledge.
He has high integrity. He knows how to build community. He is passionate and creative. He's very reliable. He has worked in established ... and start-up companies, both successfully. He's just simply a great guy. Good luck.
David Littlehale
We worked together  •  VP, Business Development, Link-Systems International, Inc.. Previously RVP, University Partnerships - Midwest, Academic Partnerships.
Michael's first and foremost a great partner. He listens carefully, he is fully present and open, and he brings a fresh perspective on what ... 's right, smart and possible. MIchael is that elusive blend of old world and new. He has both deep traditional domain expertise around virtually everything in the content/editorial realm. But he's also seen start-ups from several perspectives, and has lived the explosive rise and remarkable diversity of social media in a deeply personal way. As a musician, writer, blogger, editor and innately curious citizen of the moment, Michael is uniquely capable of offering insight and adding value, while never losing his core gracious, humble manner. Which makes him that much more enjoyable (and effective) a partner.
Hakan Satiroglu
They're my advisor: EdTech Times  •  Founder, Exponential Techspace and Co-Founder, LearnLaunchX. Boston grad.
Michael is a great team player. He takes time to understand your business and comes up with the right balance of strategy and action items.

Devorah Heitner
Founder and Director, Raising Digital Natives. Previously Assistant Professor of Communication, Lake Forest College.
Devorah's business, Raising Digital Natives, is becoming the go-to resource for parents, teachers, and administrators in the digital age. Pa ... rt of it is because Devorah is a thought leader in the space, offering savvy, "with it" opinions that you won't hear elsewhere. But her true gift is her personal touch, connecting at a human level with her clients and helping them make meaningful improvements towards good, sound digital citizenship.

Chuck Johnson
President, Sarett Consulting, LLC. Previously COO / CFO and SVP Business Development (Co-founder), The FeedRoom, Inc.. University of Southern Ca
When you hire Chuck, you get so much more than strong financial leadership. Chuck is a strategist. Numbers always present a snapshot of the ... business, but Chuck uses them to see the future. Because of his deep, embedded experience with a wide range of clients, Chuck is able to make connections that even the most seasoned industry vets miss. Chuck has built his own business from the ground up, which in a way, I hope to emulate. Not just because he's successful, but because at the heart of it is kindness, compassion, and a steady balance. He's a great model for any entrepreneur, and a fantastic mentor to me as well.

Lisa March
Managing Partner, Partner in Publishing/ The Edvantage Group. Previously Executive District Manager, Pearson Education.
I have a ton of respect for Lisa. When the educational publishing industry was first starting to show cracks in its business model, Lisa was ... among the first to take action. She saw an opportunity to help her former colleagues do better, more meaningful work. Now she has built her own best-in-class business from humble beginnings into a full-service consulting practice that employs dozens of sector specialists. She's having an impact at scale now, helping guide her clients through the nuances of the new ed tech landscape.

Jeff Shelstad
VP/General Manager - College of Professional Studies, Capella University. Previously Co-founder, Flat World Knowledge.
The business world needs more people like Jeff, though I can say from first-hand experience—it will be hard to live up to him. He has the ... mark of a true innovator—he is simply unafraid. Huge ideas, tested with rigor and discipline, turn into action. Actions turn into a movement, and you want to be a part of it. People follow Jeff because they trust him—the strength of his ideas, and the confidence in his character.

David Littlehale
VP, Business Development, Link-Systems International, Inc.. Previously RVP, University Partnerships - Midwest, Academic Partnerships.
The sales process looks different when you see David in action. He's a master at relationship-building, because it's done from the heart. He ... approaches it with a genuine desire to help—to match the solution to the problem. He has a gentle, reassuring charm, which is perfect for introducing and installing innovative solutions. Customer concerns dissipate when David's in charge. Trust wins out. David creates opportunities. He assesses the landscape, unpacks its complexities, and zeroes in on the key decision-makers and influencers. He will find and gain audience with the right person, in a way that few can. He truly connects with people on a human level. Perhaps it is because he is so well-read. He can speak intelligently on a wide array of topics. Or perhaps it's his encyclopedic knowledge of books, music, and movies. But most likely it's because David's intent always is aligned with his passion for interesting projects done the right way—with integrity and a positive outcome.

Hakan Satiroglu
Founder, Exponential Techspace and Co-Founder, LearnLaunchX. Boston grad.
Hakan knows everyone, and everyone knows Hakan. Why? Partly because he's a never-ending fountain of new business ideas. He's a thinker, a co ... nnector—someone who can detect the market need and see the next move. But what sets him apart from others in his realm is that he does the work. He's constantly exploring, nurturing relationships, and bringing people together. He's logged a string of successes, and you always feel that the next big one is just around the corner for him.

Katy Tynan
Partner, MindBridge Partners and Managing Director, Liteskip Consulting Group.
All organizations have a weakness. Katy will help you uncover it, develop a strategy to fix it, and even execute the plan if needed. She is ... an operations master from management strategy to IT, and she can root out inefficiencies that you don't even know you have. Katy is an absolute expert on how organizations work, large and small. Her direct experience runs the full range, from established companies to startups to individual freelancers and independent contractors. Her current project examines the huge influx of freelancers into the workforce, and the impact it's having nationwide. Though she's intensely analytical, you'll find her to be warm and intuitive with a genuine desire to help you improve your business.
