Carl Grant, the Executive Vice President of Business Development for Cooley, LLP, is one of the many D.C. region’s business and finance thought leaders that can be counted among the membership of the National Capital Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth.

In addition to his passion for mergers and acquisitions, venture capital and other forms of corporate growth, Carl is extremely passionate about educating up-and-coming business leaders (and potential future ACG members).

To help mold young minds and share his wealth of business knowledge, Carl has begun a new YouTube channel and video series where he talks briefly on a wide range of topics that are important to young business leaders. The series is entitled, “Carl Grant on Business,” and can be found by clicking HERE.

There are currently four videos in the series, with more installments slated to come in the New Year. We’ve embedded two of the original videos below, both about networking and advancing professionally in one’s career.

In the first video entitled, “How to Build a Professional Network,” Carl sports an attractive plaid shirt and discusses different groups and associations that young professionals can join to help network and meet like-minded business people:

In the second video entitled, “The Law of the Harvest,” Carl, looking sharp in a jacket and tie combo, discusses how young business people need to sow seeds and remember the law of the harvest when looking to grow and advance professionally:

Although new to YouTube, Carl’s insights are just the kind of things young business professionals need to be successful. They’re also incredible examples of the kind of thought leadership that ACG members bring to the table.

As evidenced by the annual ACG Cup Case Study Competition and our scholarship program, the National Capital Chapter of ACG is dedicated to providing important resources and experiences to our area’s business students. We’ll be sure to feature more “Carl Grant on Business” episodes as they become available moving forward, and we thank Carl for taking the time to share his knowledge with the National Capital Region’s future business leaders.
