Getting to know Gotham Sharma
We asked Gotham three questions to get to know him better beyond that impressive bio. Here’s what he told us.
One special thing about you that is not in your bio?
My nights are spent at comedy clubs; when I’m not speaking, teaching, or otherwise engaged with work, you’ll find me on stage telling jokes!
What would you love to chat about with conference attendees other than work?
I’m always interested in learning about what truly excites people and how it gives them meaning and purpose. So, if you run into me at JumpCon, be forewarned… we won’t be chatting about the weather or your local sports team 🙂
Why speak at JumpCon when you could be anywhere in the world?
My background is in cybersecurity and digital privacy: historically, these are fields that have had somewhat of an adversarial relationship with sales and marketing. I’m attending JumpCon to help facilitate a discussion that that can help bridge this divide and potentially inform best practices.
