Goldman, a Paramus resident, has consulted to fortune 500 companies like Disney, Polo Ralph Lauren, Chanel, Kmart, Dillards and Levi Strauss.
One of the first things this human dynamo did was to get his audience involved. He based his talk on 4 principles: Exception, Leverage, Impact and Celebration. Mike was able to put across his message evidenced by the questions during the meeting and the people that crowded around him after the 9 AM close of the meeting.
