Douglas E Dawson is Founder, Managing Director and Chief Laborvangelist of Leg Up Solutions. With industry experience in the highly regulated Big Pharma and Big Food sectors, he worked his way through college and off the production floor at the age of 37. Nearly equal parts of his 35-year career have been as exempt and non-exempt, providing empathy and a unique perspective on the challenges of organizations between labor and management and how the latent talent in labor can be harnessed for significant business results. Douglas is author of the book, “The Only BAD MISTAKE You Make, Is The One You Never Learn From: Lessons From the Battle Front”.
