Chef, food scientist, account director, and RCA president Justin Kanthak is an impressive millennial and future leader, and you could ever accuse him of resting on his laurels. He joined us on the show to share his journey with us, and I pepper him with questions throughout regarding leadership, career advancement, and asking smart questions.
We got deep in our discussion really quickly, so there isn’t a typical intro and welcome, but the depth of the topic was so good that I didn’t want to stop us. Though he’s probably going to get credit or blame for shaking up the RCA in ways it hasn’t seen with regard to how the up-and-coming generation is stepping into leadership, it has been a fire slowly building. I’m excited for this new chapter for our organization, and Justin does a great job explaining his vision for its future.
