  • AGL 205: The Smartest Person in the Room with Christian Espinosa

    Jun 4 2021

    About Christian

    Christian Espinosa is an entrepreneur, a cybersecurity engineer, a certified high-performance coach, a professor, and a lover of heavy metal music and spicy food. He’s also an Air Force veteran and Ironman triathlete. Christian used to value being the “smartest guy in the room,” only to realize that his greatest contribution to the fight against cybercrime is his ability to bring awareness to the issue through effective communication and leadership training. Christian is a speaker, coach, and trainer in the Secure methodology, helping to make the smartest people in the room the best leaders in the field.

    In his best-selling book, The Smartest Person in the Room, Christian shows leaders how to leverage their company’s smartest minds to the benefit
    of the company and the employees themselves. He describes why a high IQ is a lost superpower when effective communication, true intelligence, and self-confidence are not embraced. With his seven-step methodology and stories from the field, Christian helps leaders develop their teams’ technical minds so they become better humans and strong leaders who excel in every role. His book provides an enlightening perspective of how to turn your biggest unknown weakness into your strongest defense.
