Feed Your Future: Alumni Mentor Lunch Series
This lunch series is a tremendous opportunity for students to come together in a small group setting and ask alumni questions about their journey into the world after leaving MCAD. The focus of the series is on learning from each other and being part of a bigger conversation.
The November 4 alumni host is Steve Kloyda ’80.
Steve Kloyda graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 1980 with a BFA in Painting. Kloyda went on to become a successful Stockbroker until 1990 when he founded Telemasters, Inc. After twenty successful years of teaching and coaching sales people in a variety of industries under the Telemasters brand, Kloyda recognized that sales education was changing dramatically because of the internet and social media.
In March 2010, he sold the Telemasters brand and created a new company The Prospecting Expert in order to better acknowledge the vast array of tools available for sales people today and more clearly reflect his comprehensive vision for sales and prospecting strategies in the 21st century.
Combining his creativity, knowledge, and hands-on experience from the past 30 years Kloyda has helped transform the lives of salespeople, prospects and customers. Kloyda's motivation, insights and down-to-earth strategies provide a powerful learning experience for all. His life's work is to create ideas that Inspire, Encourage and Empower others to produce life-changing results.
