What’s my experience

Kevin Johnson is the CEO of Starbucks. He is also a father, a grandfather, a software engineer who became a leader and the first social impact investor of Talentsky, Inc. We owe Kevin our gratitude for his unwavering support of our mission to standardize skills and make the world a better place.

Lead the concepts of what Talentsky should do for users. This is more than what it looks like, it's why the application behaves the way it does. Some would call this vision, I consider it the front end of design, the conceptualization. After concepts are developed, we move to production design to create a UX that fulfills the concepts.

Oversee strategic planning processes to ensure strategies align with company's growth goals

Worked with Board of Directors to raise capital exclusively from investors motivated to both support the social impact of Talentsky and to realize an exceptional investment return.
