Role and Company
President/Founder, Chad Eaves & Associates
17 years experience in small business
Lake Zurich, IL
I have been a small business owner since 2003 and love it. My current business is one in which I coach technology professionals, business owners, and veterans. I also coach people to be effective at presentations and other forms of interpersonal communications. These are areas I coach in because of my work and life experience. Prior businesses were in IT consulting and a web software business.
I have written two books (An Entrepreneur's Carol & Achievement Alphabet), created a journal (Titan Goals Journal), speak professionally, and deliver workshops on a variety of topics. I also post articles on LinkedIn and my blog.
Prior to becoming an entrepreneur I worked as a consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers and several smaller firms. I am also a Navy veteran.
My wife and I enjoy Formula One auto racing, Gator athletics, and traveling. I am a Toastmaster in which I have won numerous club and area level competitions.
My undergraduate degree is in Agricultural & Biological Systems Engineering from the University of Florida. I have an MBA from University of Phoenix. I am also a Certified Scrum Master (Agile Project Management).
I look forward to hearing from you vets out there!
