The Crossman Conversation
About The Host:Throughout his 25-year real estate career, John Crossman has developed a solid reputation as a highly ethical and entirely professional dealmaker with a desire to give back through philanthropy in education, especially real estate scholarships at HBCUs to open doors for minorities. Over the past two decades Crossman, his family and companies have endowed scholarships at more than a half-dozen universities. Crossman has became one of the most requested speakers at industry events, colleges and universities. His successful book aimed at millennials – Career Killers/Career Builders -- is based on his most popular speech. He connects with audiences through powerful storytelling, vulnerability and transparency.
About The Show:The goal of The Crossman Conversation is to find solutions for the tough problems and challenges being faced today by those who need a different perspective outside of his/her family or work circles. “We want to hear from young professionals embarking on a career, and business owners or CEOs who need advice on work-life balance, or promoting a better work environment that may mitigate any systemic issues and move toward growth.” – John Crossman
