Chris Denny - Attention to Detail

Chris Denny - Share Your Story Podcast.jpeg

Chris Denny is a researcher, trainer, consultant, and business owner. When he is not running a business or spending time with his family, he is researching attention to detail or helping others become more detail-oriented. 

Chris delivers training workshops and seminars for companies and government organizations and conducts one on one coaching for high-value employees. Attention To Detail training is available via online courses. 

The seed of Attention To Detail Solutions started in 2010 when Chris had an employee who was technically strong and generally valuable aside from his low attention to detail. After searching for a book or training and finding nothing that would help, Chris started to create something that could help. He had inadvertently found a passion and after 6 years of exhaustive research, hundreds of surveys, and dozens of interviews, Chris emerged with the Attention To Detail Training™ system.

Amir Bormand - Technology Recruitment

Amir Bormand - Share Your Story Podcast.jpeg

Amir Bormand is the Co-founder of Elevano, a California- based recruitment company, who helps hundreds of people find more fulfilling jobs every year.

Amir is unique to the recruiting industry because he is a former engineer himself— and could still jot out a few lines of code! He’s seen the technical recruiting game from both sides, and during his engineering career, he constantly saw agency recruiters take shortcuts and use deceptive practices all for their own benefit.

That’s why, in his current position as Co-founder of Elevano, he encourages a candidate-centric approach to every aspect of technical recruiting and sales. His overriding desire is to smash the negative stigma left by current recruitment strategies, and replace it with a more transparent, honest and empathetic service offering.

When he’s not working, Amir enjoys spending time with his families and traveling. He and his wife have a 5-year-old daughter, who keeps him busy with the latest trends in Disney cartoons, you might just catch him humming Disney movie theme songs!
