After earning a master’s degree in medical and pharmaceutical sciences at the University of Ghent, Belgium, Marc Lamont decided to study economics and earn a master’s degree in business administration at the Flanders Business School, Antwerp, Belgium, a program in cooperation with the J. L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University, Chicago.
He started his career in a management position at a company that then belonged to the Fortune 500. Early in his career, his management tasks had already an international scope, first covering Western Europe and then covering additionally regions such as Eastern Europe, the Middle East, the Far East, the United States, Canada, Australia and Africa.
While the main focus of his leadership role was initially in the field of strategy, sales, and marketing, this expanded rapidly to include a general management role. During some time, he gained even responsibility for different production sites and research and development centers worldwide as part of his leadership role.
Marc worked during more than 31 years for 3 different Fortune 500 companies, mainly on new busines initiatives, but he worked also for more than 12 years in smaller startup and scaleup structures, spin-offs and joint ventures.
Leading new business initiatives for bigger companies is somewhat different than leading the development of business in startup and scaleup structures, but both type of activities have at the same moment also quite some comparable challenges. The long experience in both type of environments motivated Marc to write a book that can help founders - entrepreneurs – CEO’s of startups and scaleups, but on a broader basis the book can help everyone involved in building up a new business.
With every aspect that the author discusses, he keeps in mind the practical application of what he puts forward, and he gives you tips on how you can best apply the advice. That is why his books are not books that you just read and then store in your personal library, but rather manuals that will last a lifetime, that you read over and over again, and that you consult on a regular basis, because reading his books again gives you that extra boost to perform somewhat better than before and in a way that is easily achievable.
Marc Lamont is also the author of the book ‘The Power of Attitude Capital’ see https://www.amazon.com/Power-Attitude-Capital-Marc-Lamont/dp/1728381509/ref=sr_1_2?currency=USD&keywords=power%20of%20attitude%20capital&language=en_US&qid=1560161323&s=books&sr=1-2
