I’m excited to welcome the multi-talented Anthony Cole on the podcast this week. Anthony hails from Trinidad and Tobago and leads the Critical People Programs for Amazon Music while pursuing a music career.
Anthony shares how he got started with music and how his music career evolved over the years. He talks about opportunities such as creating a music video and song for Amazon's Bar Riser Program, and the launch of his EP called Good Vibes only.
Through this conversation we get a glimpse at what it’s like to work at a company like Amazon. For several years, Anthony has been part of the leadership of their Black Employee Network. He explains how they focus on diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. He also gives us a look at some of Amazon’s programs to help black owned businesses, including their Black Business Accelerator.
We also discussed the importance of leaning in and being part of the work culture. In today's competitive job market, standing out among the crowd can be a challenge. However, by leveraging your talents, passions, and entrepreneurial experiences, you can create a personal brand that represents your unique strengths and abilities.
