Errol Gerson is the longest running instructor at ArtCenter and for good reason. He's been sharing his knowledge, passion, wit and philosophy on sales, business and management to over 3000 students over the course of over four decades. He's getting up there in age, but hasn't slowed down one bit. This is a treat to be able to sit at the feet of master.
Gerson received a BS in Accounting from USC in 1970, and after receiving his MBA from USC in 1971, he spent eight years at a Big 8 public accounting firm.
In 1979 he co-founded a CPA Business Management firm with three other USC grads, then sold it in 1992. Gerson co-founded Cow Interactive with four Art Center grads. In 1999 he joined CAA Agency as the Director of New Media. In 2004 he left CAA and became the Principal at the Gerson Group, a Strategic Management Consulting company, where he is in practice today. Errol is a Senior Adviser to the A.I.G.A. and does Entrepreneurship and Marketing workshops and seminars across the country.
Co-Founder of AJ&Smart, a Digital Product Design agency and self described nerdy-looking Irish guy has a remarkable story to share about nearly calling it quits to finding his focus.
How did he do it? How did he become synonymous with "Design Sprints" and wind up co-creating a course with one of his mentors?
Jonathan's energy, enthusiasm and transparency is truly inspiring.
