Presentation - Business Career and Financial Success for Engineers


Engineers have very particular advantages and disadvantages in the marketplace. Many engineers become successful entrepreneurs and CEOs. Others get stuck in cubicles and dead end jobs. Some try unsuccessfully to start businesses. Some engineers are very successful at selling their ideas to the world. Others languish in frustration feeling misunderstood and unable to express their finest ideas. Perry Marshall discusses the art of bridging engineering with business, money, sales, communication, investors, and organizations. He’ll reveal the #1 factor in financial success for engineers.

This event is free and open to the public.


Perry Marshall is endorsed in FORBES and INC Magazine and is one of the most expensive business consultants in the world. Clients in 300 industries value his capacity to integrate sales, technology, art and psychology.

He founded the $5 million Evolution 2.0 Prize, staffed by judges from Harvard, Oxford and MIT. He aims to solve the #1 mystery in Artificial Intelligence and the origin of life itself.

His 80/20 Curve is a productivity tool in NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs at the California Institute of Technology, and his Google AdWords book laid the foundations for the $100 billion Pay Per Click industry.

Marketing maverick Dan Kennedy says, “If you don’t know who Perry Marshall is — unforgivable. Perry’s an honest man in a field rife with charlatans.”
