REACH Interview Series: Mitch Joel

The Reach Interview Series is an informal dialogue between Andy Molinsky and respected thought leaders about the challenges of stepping outside your comfort zone, especially in the process of developing yourself as a leader.

Mitch Joel is the president of Mirum, a worldwide digital marketing agency operating in 20 countries with 2000 employees. He’s a marketing guru who has been dubbed by Marketing Magazine as the “Rock Star of Digital Marketing,” and a speaker who has shared the stage with former President of the United States, Bill Clinton, Sir Richard Branson, Malcolm Gladwell, Anthony Robbins, and Tom Peters. What you might not know about Mitch, however, is that he’s never been completely comfortable speaking in public. And in this interview, he discusses why — and how he manages the challenges.
