My name: Matt Peters

My company: Visa

My title: Director, Talent Development

My location: Foster City, California

Best business advice I ever received: “People don’t remember what you say. People remember how you make them feel.”

Most daring personal career move: I switched from technical services to corporate learning. This required me to take a pay cut and learn an entirely new set of skills. It has paid off in so many ways. I love what I do and who I’m doing it for.  

What I’m most proud of: Personally: my family. Professionally: successfully creating and executing a model for self-sustaining, SME-driven, senior technical faculty.  

Current workplace challenge: Integrating learning into the work stream; removing the choice between attending learning or getting the job done.   

Something people don’t know about me: I speak fluent Mandarin Chinese.
