Black Man Brilliance – Steven Brooks on the Power of Grit

On this episode of Protégé Podcast Presents: #BlackManBrilliance, I talk with hospitality and leisure executive Steven Brooks. Steve talks about how he built a successful career in the procurement function through his uncanny blend of exceptional negotiation and strategic advisory skills. We talk about the challenge of starting a family before starting your career, the gift of failure, and what Ta-Nehisi Coates got right about Howard University. The truth bombs abound in one of our final episodes in the #BlackManBrilliance series.
