In Chapter 1 of 12 in his 2010 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, media and publishing entrepreneur Phil McKenzie joins Goldman Sachs sales and trading upon earning his MBA at Duke University. McKenzie is thrown into an unfamiliar trading floor and industry environment and is forced to adapt over time. McKenzie recounts that initial year as the most challenging in his career given the intensity and overwhelming amount of new information to learn, both at the bank and within the industry - pharmaceuticals - he covered as a trader.

Phil McKenzie worked in sales and trading at Goldman Sachs for eight years before embarking on an entrepreneurial career. McKenzie is now co-founder of FREE DMC, a New York based event, media and publishing company, and co-founder of the Influencer Conference, a global event series bringing together entrepreneurial, arts, design, and non-profit communities. Phil McKenzie graduated from Howard University and earned an MBA from the Duke University Fuqua School of Business.
