Have you ever looked at the way bands and music artists operate—at various levels of success—and found parallels to the ways that businesses need to constantly innovate, grow and empower their teams to get the best out of them? Or how the power of listening can open up new and unexpected opportunities?
As a former professional musician turned technology executive, I’ve seen and lived these parallels between the stage and office and put them into practice. There are more connections than you may think.”
About Todd Pasternack | After being a professional musician for over ten years (writing, recording, producing, touring internationally) Todd Pasternack had the unbelievably good fortune of becoming just as passionate about creating with code and technology as he was with musical instruments. Todd transitioned full-time into digital marketing design, development, and ultimately strategy and product development. Over the years, Todd has consulted on advertising technology for brands and agencies such as Ford, Apple, Showtime, Nike, American Express, Coke, R/GA, W+K, BBDO, and built and grew relationships with strategic technology and publisher partners such as Facebook, Microsoft, Adobe, Twitter, Comcast, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CBSi, and others. When Todd isn’t geeking out on ad tech, he’s spending time with his wife and two sons in Palo Alto, CA. You might also find him playing guitar and singing alongside his wife on bass and vocals in one of their music projects.https://www.toddpasternack.com/
