Connecting Veterans To Opportunities w/ 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 on 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 sizes, 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 in the vitality of corporations across the world. I love to talk to non-profit leaders about their junior boards and the engagement of their target audience.   https://www.linkedin.com/in/michaelsmccoy/ Visit our sponsors Insight Insurance Services and The Lonely Entrepreneur.
