HOW FORMER CALL CENTER AGENTS BECAME TECH LEADERS

Your First Contact with the People that Made It!

Because no one pictures themselves working at a call center, First Contact: Stories of the Call Center is a monthly podcast about how tech leaders and entrepreneurs found their way into the call center industry. And it’s never linear.

Host Christian Montes poses questions about their life, their path, their struggles and successes, and most importantly- how and why did they end up with a headset on.
