Message from Oscar: I met my wife in college and right out of school we started a chemical engineering software company. I co-led our company for 35 years, all the way from inception to exit to a Japanese firm. Throughout its existence we ensured that it was a people-first organization. We created a unique space where everybody learned, supported one another, and became a key contributor to the company. This is what I am most proud of.
From me this is personal. I love and respect every human being. I recognize in every person that they are creative, resourceful, and whole. I am ready to accompany you in your journey.

Background: Matt founded Pod2 in 2019 after holding various VP positions in a fast-growth energy tech startup.
Over 25% of his former employees are now in leadership positions of their own.
He now consults with leaders of startups and executives at Fortune 500 companies to help them do a better job for their people and their P&L.
Message from Matt:
I was thrust into management at 26, made VP at 27, and exited to start my own company at 30. When my first child (of 3) was born, I realized I needed to make big changes if I was going to be the dad that I wanted to be and
achieve my professional goals.
This led me to learn everything I could about how to be effective, including leadership, productivity, management, efficiency, Buddhism, Essentialism, and plenty more.
I won't claim to be an expert, but I've learned from a lot of mistakes and I know how to help people. That usually happens by drawing the best out of them, not doing things for them.
And if I can't help, I won't bullshit you.
