    Samson is a senior emergency & finance strategist specializing in operations & technology, healthcare and financial services crisis management. As a globally recognized expert on technology and crisis communications, I strive to develop compelling content and deliver a message through distinct, actionable, and measurable campaigns.

Ultimately, spending the last two years leading internal communications, workforce development and organizational resiliency for Fannie Mae’s Operations & Technology Division. Most recently during the Covid19 Pandemic I advise the C-Suite at the Department of Veteran Affairs, Under Armour and CVS Health as their in-house Crisis Manager.

    Prior to investing in Going Public and creating The Space Economy show, I served as the Principle Consultant for Axes and Eggs, a global technology advisory building relationships beyond tech in Dubai, Riyadh and throughout the Middle East North Africa region. There I oversaw education, messaging, communications strategy and media planning for finance, fintech and government agencies throughout the Middle East. Executing events and relationships with government agencies from the United Arab Emirates, Kingdoms of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, Mauritius and India.


    In short, my passion and super power is helping smart and amazing people be more smart and amazing in the 5th Industrial Revolution.
