What skill have you developed since leaving formal education that has been most useful in your career? by Matt Taylor

I understand operations in my job from a standpoint of historical context. Understanding my job from an historical context helps significantly because any sourcing event I am assigned, I know who did the prior solicitation which gives me insight into how the project was done before. I have been in my current job for over 16 years so I have seen many different executive leaders come and go which helps me understand the direction my organization operates in as it is affected by how the previous leadership operated. This skill is beneficial to others who are much newer to the organization because I can share insight with them on the projects they are assigned as well.

About Matthew Taylor

My name is Matt Taylor and I have been a public speaker for 12 years. I am fascinated with the art of speaking, beginning with my early days in the U.S. Air Force. I was inspired by the former Commissioner of my state agency because when he spoke, people listened. I decided then, I want to be a great speaker like him. I joined my local Toastmasters club in 2010 and was able to develop my path as a public speaker from there. Over my journey as a speaker, one thing I have learned is anyone can become a public speaker, they just need the right guidance and coaching. The assistance, mentoring, and coaching I have provided has not only helped others become better with speaking, but it continues to help me grow in my speaking career as well.
