My name is Jack Skeels and I write about things that I know and I don’t know, especially when they have to do with strategy, products and marketing.
My great passion is to explore the unknown, and I have found my work in strategy and client partnering to be the best way to find new horizons. I’ve had many great pleasures in my career, including working with dozens of Fortune 100 companies as my clients, spending several years as a senior analyst at RAND Corporation, teaching graduate-level strategy at two prestigious universities, and winning a handful of awards, including the Inc. 500 award (twice) for a consulting firm that I started. I’ve started or been part of the founding/innovation team eight startups, three of which ended in sale transactions.
By day, I work with clients, Great and Small, at my latest startup, AgencyAgile (.com) — we help interactive marketing agencies deliver projects better, faster, and happier. Cheaper too. Let me know if I can help you. I also invented a sinus care product called Sinox Spray using licensed technology from a somewhat larger personal care and pharma company on the east coast. We are now re-branding and relaunching this month as Snoot!
I live in Topanga, California with my wife Michelle and the most stunning sunrises you will ever see.
