LISTENUPSHOW

 

Governance, strategy meets growth, sage advice from Thomas L. Doorley, Chairman, CEO, Cofounder. Tom tells us it’s satisfying to help entrepreneur's across the full cycle of Stage 0 (idea) through to Stage 4 (sustainable enterprise).All young companies have to face the daunting task of “crossing the Valley of Death”, also known in academic circles as “crossing the Chasm”. This is the fact that describes the competitive dynamics in a business sector where lots of small, high-growth, young companies exist and a few much larger, more established companies have scale and scope. The challenge: How to go from young/small (Stage 1-2) to the other side of the Valley (Stage 4) where they have enough process, structure, and scale in place to be ‘sustainable’

 

In the case of his first startup, Braxton Associates, a strategy consulting firm launched after the Boston Consulting Group defined the consulting space they named”Strategy” and Bain & Co followed suit, we were half a decade late to the game. They grew organically from their Boston base to a second office in London and a joint venture in Tokyo (he knew they had to be global). They grew rapidly to about 100 professionals. His Valley to jump was the challenge to be 10X the size to meet the competition in the battle for major clients. They were approached by the then CEO of Touche Ross (prior to their merger with Deloitte) to become their operational and IT consultancy into the sphere of C-Suite advisors. Two years after they joined the merger with Deloitte was consummated.

 

Tom has helped successful entrepreneur's like Matthew Marolda who is now Chief Analytics Officer at Legendary Entertainment. He formed and runs Legendary’s Applied Analytics division, which uses data and analytics to drive strategic decisions across all aspects of the company. Prior to Legendary, Matt Marolda founded StratBridge LLC in 1999. StratBridge had two software solutions businesses: “moneyball” player analysis software used by many organizations in the NFL, NBA, European Football and Major League Soccer (sold to XOS Digital in 2012), and dynamic pricing and revenue analysis software used by many professional sports teams (acquired by Legendary in 2014, after Mr. Marolda had joined Legendary). He earned his MBA at the Tuck School at Dartmouth where he won the Adams Award for Excellence in Entrepreneurship. Matt Marolda graduated from Bowdoin College with Honors, earning majors in economics and mathematics and a minor in art history.

 

Tom's other clients: Northrop Grumman, Deloitte, and Abeam Consulting (Japan). Most recently the New England Region of Deloitte for Retired Partners honored Tom in their Hall of Fame – this past December 2016. Tom spoke to a group of 2000 employees about a balanced life.

CandiDate Founder Amber Wanner Show 037 The post Candidate Philly Find a Tech Job and Date Listenup Show 037 Startup Entrepreneuyr Podcast was first published on mitchellchadrow.com Recruiting meets matchmaking. The Candidate Story: CandiDate plays on your wants, needs, desires, goals, and more. Think Maslow Hierarchy of Needs from a candidates primary or physiological needs to ultimately reaching Self-Actualization in life. The company through their owners and board of advisors know the five stages well: 1. Biological and Physiological needs - air, food, drink, shelter, warmth, sex, sleep. 2. Safety needs - protection from elements, security, order, law, stability, freedom from fear. 3. Love and belongingness needs - friendship, intimacy, trust and acceptance, receiving and giving affection and love. Affiliating, being part of a group (family, friends, work). 4. Esteem needs - achievement, mastery, independence, status, dominance, prestige, self-respect, respect from others. 5. Self-Actualization needs - realizing personal potential, self-fulfillment, seeking personal growth and peak experiences. CandiDate is taking a holistic approach to the way things are historically done. CandiDate has taken the craft of Recruiting and combined it with the art of Matchmaking. We use the same process and technique that we use to find someone a job, in finding them a date. CandiDate is NOT exclusive to either service, but the idea is to fulfill the aspect of our candidate’s lives that has not been fulfilled yet, whether it is professional (job), personal (date), or both. At the end of the day, our candidates are our main focus and working with the tech community in Philadelphia to attract, maintain, and build Philadelphia to be a place they want to work, play, and start their family. What does this mean? Well, IF you are in the tech space and looking for a job OR you are in the tech space and are looking for a date, OR you are looking for both we are here to help. We are going to be holding fun tech events, and private mixers for our members, and free consultations so you can see exactly what CandiDate can offer you. Amber Wanner Founder & CEO Prior to starting the company, Amber spent 4 years working with the Philly tech community, to find and deliver exceptional tech talent to growing companies. She founded the company on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs with the goal to fulfill not only her candidate's professional goals (jobs) but their personal goals as well (dates). She is passionate about providing her candidates with the best possible opportunities, so they can have a fulfilling career, and also have a fulfilling life outside of work.
