How will you thrive in the future of work?

This week, we’re talking with Tim Salau, aka Mr. Future of Work, who is CEO and Co-founder of the Guide app,

a B2B Learning & Talent Development app helping remote teams and knowledge workers learn anytime, anywhere, on-demand.

Tim is an author, investor, accomplished international keynote speaker, product leader and tech influencer. Before founding Guide, he led product and innovation with 4 global Fortune 500

companies: Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and WeWork, coaching CEOs, executives, and government leaders on how they can transform their workforce to thrive in the Future of Work.

Tune in to learn how Tim’s childhood experience as an immigrant from Nigeria helped shape him into the man he is today, and how he stayed on a straight path while growing up in the worst part of Houston. We’ll also cover how to advocate for yourself in your career, the difference between good and bad company culture, and Tim’s signature P.I.E. principle to build your brand community.
