As a Creative Leader
Brett will change your company for the better. How? Well, I could tell you that he’s a smart and strategic manager who motivates his employees to do their best work. But there’s so much more to it than that. Under his leadership, a team of four other writers and I were tasked with giving our company website a major overhaul in terms of content, layout, optimization and overall presentation. Less than 6 months after Brett put together this team and took on this project, our company reached record sales of $2 million in a single day.
And then we did it again. And again.
Brett will be the first to be modest about this fact and say it was a team effort and a company effort, but there is absolutely no doubt that his leadership and technical skill played an indispensable role in the current success that this company experiences today.
Several other projects were brought to our team following the first website overhaul, and Brett successfully distributed those duties and managed the multi-armed, web content-producing machine that he created. Not only is he a great manager, but he also possesses a wealth of technical skills from HTML to interactive marketing strategy to copywriting to SEO to video editing to CMS and more. His hands-on knowledge of these technical skills contribute to his great management abilities as he is able to understand his employees from the ground up.
However, what truly makes Brett a great leader is his intuitive understanding of people, his compassion, his honesty, his integrity and his absolute commitment to producing great work. He is someone whom you can always depend on and who – through his leadership, wealth of knowledge, and positive presence – brings out the best in those around him. If you want your business to grow, to succeed, to be a better place, to have happier employees, and to create great and meaningful work, then trust it in Brett’s hands.
