The entire world laughed when we saw the now infamous “BBC Dad” video back in 2017, a portent of what was to become reality for millions in 2020. That video is now a symbol of our new normal and a testament to how leadership is being reimagined, redefined, and reinvented every day.
Today’s guest is no stranger to reinvention. When Michael Roderick went from high school teacher to Broadway producer in under two years people started to ask him how he managed it. Michael began his career as a high school English teacher before producing Off-Broadway and then on Broadway. This combination of experience in the arts and entrepreneurship led to Michael starting an arts incubator program to teach more artists about building and growing their own businesses (PLAE). Eventually, he decided to develop a workshop on networking which grew into a full-time consulting practice and that became Small Pond Enterprises.
Michael took a short break to work as the V.P. of Operations and as a Director of Business Development for an NYC Ed. Tech Startup which introduced him to the New York Startup community. Most recently, Michael founded The Connecting Connectors Conference (ConnectorCon).
