Mike Snyder has a master’s degree in marketing communication from the University of Kansas and taught strategic marketing for years in an MBA program where his unorthodox approach to marketing and instruction earned him the highest student scores within the program. In his work Mike helps business owners escape fruitless efforts in endless tactics and marketing spends that produce little to no ROI. Instead, he helps owners and their teams focus on making big strategic leaps that unify marketing efforts as well as management teams, all to produce long-term, unfair competitive advantages. The goal, as he says, is to build a moat around your business filled with sharks with laser beams.
