Classroom Without Walls: A School For Entrepreneurs
was born out of my desire to become a better college professor of social media, public relations, and communication.
This is how the story began.
Five years into my teaching career as a college Professor, I realized that students can NOT just learn from academics. They need to learn from professionals who are in the field practicing, testing, validating, and making mistakes. I cannot offer solid and life-changing advice if I was just standing in the classroom and teaching by a book. If I cared about my students deeply and truly wanted to them to succeed, I had to practice what I was teaching in the classroom. In other words, if I wanted to help my students be future ready as a savvy digital media pro, I had to be future ready myself. Needless to say, I had to become a practitioner.
That wake-up call gave birth to my first live streaming show in 2017, Classroom Without Walls: A School For Entrepreneurs.
It started as a hashtag and then grew into a live streaming show. On this show, I interview leading social media marketers, entrepreneurs, and business leaders to share their best practices and lessons. The goal is to future proof our business.
I love partnering up with influential leaders to co-teach, co-create, and co-learn. This partnership has also empowered students to leverage social media more strategically and to lead with purpose and agency.
The show has helped be, substantially, to BREAK DOWN the four walls and disrupt the sage-on-the-stage model.
To this day, Classroom Without Walls has interviewed hundreds of thought leaders such as Seth Godin, Mark Schaefer, Neil Patel, Guy Kawasaki, Cathy Hackl, Winnie Sun and so many more.
The show has also helped me grow a global audience of passionate learners from more than 20 countries, who join me on a regular basis to co-learn, co-create, and co-teach.
