Ronald Recardo’s 30-year career spans being a keynote speaker, management consultant, a Professor at UCONN’s business school, an entrepreneur, member of 3 boards of directors, author of 8 books/70 articles, and a former corporate executive. He has been interviewed/quoted by a number of prestigious publications such as “Associated Press”, “Harvard Business Review”, “Industry Week”, “US News & World Report”, “MSNBC” and “CBS News” and has been a guest on several television/radio shows. If he didn’t have a provocative point of view and considerable thought leadership, these leading media outlets wouldn't be reaching out!
This podcast uses a business talk show format to interview entrepreneurs, business executives, key service providers (e.g., accountants, investment bankers) to share their experiences. Additionally, Ronald will share his war stories, tools, and research having worked with over 140 different companies across a range of sizes and industries. You will learn valuable tips for growing your business, improving performance, and addressing common organizational/people issues.
If you are tired of those “touchy feely”, academic, “hairy fairy”, conceptual podcasts, then this show is for you. Nothing but “business superstars” who have a track record of success!
