Michael Gold is the founder and president of Jazz Impact, where he develops and conducts interactive seminars that bring together the two seemingly disparate worlds of jazz and business. Gold’s expertise is in creating customized training sessions that reinforce team-building, problem solving and other management skills by drawing upon the lessons of jazz. He has been a sought-after keynote speaker for top Fortune 500 companies and other organizations, including Aetna Insurance, Starbucks, McGraw- Hill, Thomson International, and even the United Nations.

Gold’s extensive background in music, academia and business was essential in developing Jazz Impact. He held various senior management positions in the real estate and financial services industries, holds a Ph.D. in music and created and ran Vassar College’s first jazz program. He has spent nearly two decades as a jazz bassist in New York having performed with such greats as Lee Konitz, Al Cohn, Tal Farlow, Sheila Jordan and Warne Marsh.

Gold has lectured at the University Of Chicago Graduate School Of Business and is currently working on the development of arts-based learning modules for The Executive MBA and Leadership Development Programs at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He was recently selected as a Paul D. Fleck Fellow by The Banff Centre for Leadership for his outstanding work in the field of Arts Based Learning for Business. Gold is currently completing his first authored book detailing the work he has been conducting with Jazz Impact in keynotes and seminars nationally and international since 1999.
