Leveling Up - Environmental Protection Agency SF

Julia Jackson from the environmental protection agency reached out to me to be the Keynote speaker for their Black History month celebration. The title was Leveling Up, Lessons Learned from a Career in Games. I covered lessons I learned from projects that I have completed over the years. Some highlights include:

  1. Learn to wear many hats but don't be a jack of all trades and a master of none.

  2. Never let anyone steal your thunder

  3. Learn from Others

  4. Be Bold and Push Boundaries - 

  5. If the boss isn't happy. Your not happy.

  6. Embrace Change or Else

  7. You Can't Polish A Turd

  8. Trust Your Gut

  9. Speaking to Power - The art of saying “No” without saying “No”

  10. “Be the Change you want to see in the world” Mahatma Gandhi
