Robert Blaise


Business consultant, Dr. Robert Blaise, has over 25 years of business management experience as an accomplished entrepreneur, business leader, and scholar-practitioner." As an instructor within a college faculty or as a business consultant, my mentoring philosophy centers on three principles: to embolden critical thinking, provide clients with a method of connecting empirical knowledge to practical applications, and to utilize impactful teaching aids to engage my audience better.”

 

Robert’s industry experience includes transportation and logistics, eCommerce, medical device manufacturing and academic instructing.  Within academia, Robert served as adjunct faculty member and taught courses in Operations Management for Competitive Advantage Data Analysis for Business Decisions (MBA), Organizational Strategy, and Business Integration Skills.

 

Robert holds a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, a Master of Business Administration, and a Doctorate of Philosophy in Business Management, with a specialization in Strategy & Innovation. Robert is a published scholar in the field of Internet commerce and has a personal passion for using data for supporting business decisions. “I believe that my combined academic and business experience is a perfect complement to the role of SBCD consultant. Underpinning my approach is a firm belief that business mentoring is a two-way process.  It is not the consultant's role to merely direct; the client is an equal partner in the process, with the consultant facilitating the client's ability to think for themselves rather than being told what to think to become an autonomous entrepreneur”.

 

Robert’s hobbies include photography, videography, and woodworking all of which were self-taught. “I feel it is essential to be an ongoing learner; not just from new and classical research, and the application of my ideas, but also from analyzing how others exercise their learning and by observing the outcomes.”
