Cameron-Brooks Podcast: Episode 1: Mentors, Relationships, and Getting the Right People in the Right Positions

Brad Cantebury is a 2007 United States Naval Academy Graduate who spent 6 years in the Marine Corps before transitioning to business. He is currently a Supplier Technology Manager at United Technologies, and while he has only been out of the military working in business for 3 years, he has a lot share about making an impact early in a career. Topics we cover include:

  • The best career advice Brad received: “You will solve 80% of your problems with getting the right people into the right positions,” and how he does that.
  • The importance of communicating with your boss and not to being afraid to over communicate.
  • How to find a mentor and manage that relationship.
  • You are responsible for taking control of your career.
  • How Procurement is much more than negotiating price and quantity deals with suppliers.
  • Success comes down to building relationships
