Darren Coleman is a well-known Cybersecurity expert and was a featured speaker at the annual thought leaders conference Business Expert Forum at the Harvard Faculty Club in Cambridge. These thought leaders include CEOs, dignitaries, professionals, best-selling authors, technical and medical experts from around the world.
Colemans’ journey to becoming a best-selling author and speaking at Harvard began with a phone call and a request. To the audience at Harvard he said, “Was it a request or was it an opportunity! You have to bring your ‘A’ game!”
The opportunity was to be a featured contributing author in the book ‘Easy Prey: How to Protect Your Business from Data Breach, Cyber Crime and Employee Fraud’.” The book became a No. 1 best-seller on Amazon.
While public speaking was not his forte` and he wasn’t a stellar student, Coleman said, “To be here speaking at Harvard is truly fantastic.”
We know that a large part of our business comes from referrals from happy, satisfied clients,” said Coleman, “that is why we work so hard to go above and beyond the call of duty.”
Coleman told how he became to own the business that now bears his name and explained the one major stipulation he had to honor. “I had to continue to service and honor all of the existing customers that had warranties and service obligations for which they had already been paid. Looking back, it wasn’t a very big obligation. It’s something I would have done. It’s something I learned from my father,” said Coleman.
Coleman’s advice to the audience at Harvard Faculty Club was as follows: “As entrepreneurs, be willing to commit to your clients, your customers and especially to your family. It’s our commitment that allows us to have things that we cherish. In business, commitment has been the defining factor that has enabled me to survive and thrive.”
