On October 3rd, 2014 at 10:00 am, Mohawk College is once again putting on their annual Media Panel, where industry professionals are asked to come in and share their stories and experiences about how they got to be where they are today. This year’s theme is Entrepreneurship and our very own Adam Oldfield has been asked to come be a guest speaker to talk to the students about the ups, downs, and everything in between that comes with owning and operating your own business.
When Adam first began his career, his intention was to get into working with computers. Somewhere along the way, he got into radio broadcasting and landed a position as a promotion coordinator at the top radio station in Hamilton, making many connections while in promotions. As luck would have it, he made a few good connections through networking with the sales department. He observed how to connect with clients, and how that resulted in generating revenue and meeting their station’s budgets. When he was introduced to some of the radio station’s clients, he worked hard to build relationships that ended up helping set the foundation for FPM3.
It hasn’t been an easy journey for him, not by a long shot! There were great days, where everything seemed to be going right, but then there were days when Adam thought he would be closing the doors to his business indefinitely. All in all, throughout the years Adam has persevered, going against all odds and today stands 8 employees strong with over 120 clients under his belt!
We’re so proud and fortunate to have him as our leader and mentor here at FPM3, and can’t wait to see what great things the future holds for our company!
Here’s to you Adam!
