Here’s some information about our guest:
CEO & Business Advisor, Speaker, Author
As an international business advisor, speaker, author and investor, Jacob delivers results for ambitious companies in Europe, North America and across Asia-Pacific. Every year he works with a small number of privately-owned companies, usually with between 12 and 96 employees who don't have the time for a dozen experts and need one person they can trust to move towards their collective dreams, faster.
Entertaining with an easy conversational style, a sharp wit, and brilliant humour, Jacob has the uncanny knack of distilling complex concepts into simple soundbites and powerful strategies that founders, executives, and team members both love … and actually execute to create results.
What are you famous for?
Alumni clients and audience members describe Jacob as the smart and quirky business guy who "gets shit done in business". Jacob brings business experience that impacts both profit and valuation – plus a unique energy borne from the belief that business is best when it’s fun.
