Meet Sly Nicolia

Business Development Manager

Whether he’s giving a speech to a sales team, chatting with a client over the phone, or wowing a crowd with his latest karaoke performance, Sly is passionate about making meaningful connections with his audience, no matter the scenario. As a member of our Business Development team, Sly supports leaders and teams across the East Coast as they embark on their professional learning journey.

Sly brings an impressive background in sales and business development to his role at Own The Room.

Sly also spent several years as a Regional Sales Consultant for Prudential Financial, managing client relationships across a $20 million territory for Prudential Annuities.
