The A-List Podcast

Listen in as host and Adhouse professor Tom Christmann speaks with Derek Walker, owner of Brown & Browner Advertising in Columbia, SC and a brash and opinionated voice that never lets the industry off the hook on twitter (@derklwalker).

Derek's origin story is fascinating. He grew up in Germany as the son of a U.S. army drill sergeant. He was turned away from a job he had all but landed on the phone because, according to the unnamed Atlanta agency owner: “our clients aren’t ready for a black copywriter”.

Tips from this episode: ALWAYS READ THE EMPLOYEE MANUAL, take a sales class and always be your raw, authentic self.
