When schools and universities shut their doors and switched to online learning to slow the spread of coronavirus, the leading direct-to-student online learning platform experienced a huge demand in business (64% year-over-year revenue growth & 69% subscriber growth). In the next episode of our "If I Knew Then Leadership Lessons" series, Comparably CEO Jason Nazar talks to Dan Rosensweig, President/CEO of Chegg (NYSE: CHGG), about how he transformed the popular textbook rental model into today's digital age with on-demand educational resources that help students get smarter while saving time and money. The company has since gone public and is now worth $11B with 3 million subscribers in 190 countries. With 30 years of Silicon Valley experience as Yahoo's COO, Guitar Hero's CEO, and ZDNet's CEO, Rosensweig's background will make for an enlightening conversation. Other topics include:

  • Virtual Learning/Online Education 
  • The Future of Higher Education
  • The Steps to Digital Transformation
  • How to Grow During The Pandemic
  • Authenticity in Leadership & Corporate Culture
