Rami Jahedi, Talk Show Host Aug 02, 2017

Ramin is the founder of OpticTour Google Trusted Agency, and he serves as the company’s President and Chief Executive Officer. In addition to leading OpticTour,  Ramin is a talk show host, speaker, and a digital marketing consultant to many companies and provides coaching and consulting to top level managers and executives. He is regarded for his out-of-the-box thinking and highly creative approach to addressing complex digital marketing and branding issues.

Prior to founding OpticTour, Ramin worked as a Chief Operating Officer for Carey International, one of the largest transportation companies, and also as a corporate consultant in service, management, and sales for Jack in the Box and Blockbuster Corporation. As a consultant, he saw the effects of "tunnel vision" where corporations tend to focus more on the bottom line than on the people who are managing it. By neglecting their lower-level employees, many large businesses miss out on the wellspring of potential that exists within each individual. 
With his full range of management experience under his belt, Ramin set out to share his knowledge. He feels a sense of honored duty to help others to achieve the happiness he feels every day. Ramin thrives on inspiring others to never give up through helping organizations learn practical methods for motivating themselves towards ever increasing success.  
Ramin holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Information Systems from the University of Phoenix School of Business.
