Who is Sanford?
Sanford Dickert (@sanford) has an unusually eclectic background – having a deep technical understand across many technical fields, combining it with a relentless user-centric design philosophy and adding years of teaching and mentorship provides a charming solution to most technical challenges and product frustrations.
Seeing technology more as an artistic medium than simply a tool, Sanford loves to deliver products and services for companies in almost every industry, since technology is industry agnostic.
Geography is never a problem – Sanford has worked in Silicon Valley, New York City, London and China — all whilst delivering amazing products, improved people and company success.
While he works with Fortune 500 firms and other enterprises in innovation efforts, he often finds his greatest impact working with venture funds, PE firms and family offices. These firms often seeking a solution in new product delivery or organizational improvement – skilling up teams to grow into the innovative, successful workforces they aim for.
Through his efforts, teams better understand and execute on customer-focused solutions through collaboration and cooperation — with the effective use of technology, performance metrics and product development/marketing.
Sanford also enjoys public speaking and teaching on topics ranging from technology, entrepreneurship, programming and leadership. In the 2010s, he frequented China, speaking at schools and universities regarding Western education opportunities, STEAM curriculum creation and deep-tech topics like robotics and AI.
