The Economist magazine once described Carl J. Schramm as “The Evangelist of Entrepreneurship.” Professor Schramm earned the moniker during the decade he was the president of the $2 billion Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, which is among the largest private foundations in America, working to help entrepreneurs succeed.
These days Professor Schramm writes about entrepreneurship and teaches at Syracuse University, one of only 16 members of the faculty since 1870 to be given the prestigious, at-large title of University Professor.
This week Professor Schramm conducts a Master’s Class in entrepreneurship exclusively for host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, using the professor’s new book – Burn the Business Plan: What Great Entrepreneurs Really Do – as assigned reading.
Think you need an MBA to be a business success? Think again. Professor Schramm says that the proven path to business success is one of passion, determination, and a willingness to experiment and innovate. Class is starting right now.

Davia serves as an advisor to senior executives and boards at the highest levels of American business, and she has emerged as the go-to consultant on what companies and other organizations must do to eradicate sexual harassment in their organizations.
Featured often for her expertise in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Forbes, Institutional Investor and other respected news outlets, Davia shares with listeners her 15-point plan for business owners, boards, and CEOs to not just respond to the wave of sexual harassment complaints, but to actually get ahead of the issue.

Getting a popular entertainer, athlete, author, blogger, or YouTuber to say nice things about your business or products is a powerful way to generate sales.
Greg Jameson, author of The Influencer Effect, specializes in helping companies identify the influential men and women who can provide them the greatest endorsement leverage, and then negotiating terms with those influencers.
As Greg explains to host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, an effective influencer needn’t have a household name. Anyone with a loyal following, no matter how small, can often produce over-sized results for the companies and products that they endorse.
