Brian Jackson
Business Operations Analyst
My favorite client story has been helping a large government agency understand not only the technical aspects and requirements of switching to green fuel, but also bringing in my background in market dynamics and forecasting to show how key drivers in the private sector can help influence and shape the adoption of new technologies.
Are you ready to face future challenges? I’ve always enjoyed conversations with clients about how they can prepare for the unknown. There is no better place to do it than here at Toffler Associates!
