Join this conversation with world-class business strategist Michael Bird. Michael and Kathleen could talk for hours about the creative ways they approach different business challenges. In this show they are pulling back the curtain and inviting you to the conversation on business strategy. Listen in and learn a strategy or two that you could apply to your business today.

Michael Bird helped found Spindustry in 1996 after working previously for EDS, an industry leader in information technology. Since then Michael has been leading Spindustry as it grew into an ebusiness leader producing e-commerce solutions, web applications, and digital marketing programs. Along the way, Spindustry has created sister organizations that provide technical training, technical staffing, and a range of SharePoint solutions.

When not working, Michael spends time with his wife Lora, two children and friends. If he is not in Des Moines, he is likely at Walt Disney World. In Des Moines, you might find him at a Star Wars movie premiere or organizing Funko Pops in his office.

Michael is a strategist, combining skills in application development and marketing. He utilizes those skills in strategy sessions with clients and in facilitating workshops and speaking sessions.
