Transitioning Thought Leadership | Matias Obludzyner

Taking your thought leadership from a corporation to a solo act.

An interview with Matias Obludzyner about transitioning positions, authoring a book, and the value of communication.


Today’s guest is Matias Obludzyner, a leadership and communications consultant with years of experience at the International Finance Corporation and author of Expanding Circle.

Matias shares his experience working at the IFC helping leaders with communication and change management.  Afterwards, he explains how his time working with incredible leaders there was a key influence in writing his book.

We discuss how Matias has struck out on his own to help the leaders of other organizations with how they position themselves externally and how they influence others. Furthermore, we chat about finding the first clients, developing price and scope without a known brand behind you.

Finally, Matias shares the journey of writing the book which started before he left IFC.  He discusses what the book brings to the table in the next phase of his career. Then, explains how he uses it to his advantage, and how he promoted the book.

If you want to take your thought leadership out of a corporation and go it alone, this episode is filled with great advice.
