Lawrence is currently serving multiple companies and industries as a board member. He consults with various companies to improve business operations, valuation, and performance. Lawrence resides in Atlanta, Georgia.
Here is a glimpse of what Lawrence shared in the interview.
“I’m a team player kind of guy. Investment banks are “I” kind of places. Consulting firms are “we” places.”
“It’s time to stop doing what I do if you say I’ve seen everything, and I’ve done everything.”
“I am not an expert in any industry. I am an inch deep and a mile wide in my expertise. So, you really have to listen, learn quickly, and when you are trying to build credibility with your client acknowledge you don’t understand the business.”
