red right fox is an aron solomon thing
The term "red right fox" is part of the legendary West Coast Offense in football. Key components to the West Coast Offense are precision-timed passing, variable offensive formations, and utilizing the best of each player's skills. This offense takes as its foundation the following realities: the game is fast, we need to be flexible in embracing change, be willing to mix things up, and always (always ALWAYS) play to our strengths.
I see life and business the same way.
So red right fox is an idea, a place for some of my things to reside that will go far beyond the old aronsolomon.com into something newly unfolding. This isn't a business site, nor is it a personal one. Where my old aronsolomon.com site (which I had for very close to a decade) was, I think, a very limited site, red right fox is a space for ideas to seed and grow.
Welcome to red right fox.
what red right fox stands for
At its core, red right fox stands for value and authenticity.
Far too often, businesses spend ridiculous amounts of money creating pointless illusions. What they should be doing is creating much better experiences for the people who use what they make. It's obvious, but I think that if businesses focus on making things that are great, then people will want to keep engaging with their brands.
So, car companies should make safer, more comfortable, cars that we actually love to drive. Schools should offer better quality education that is so interesting that students will want to engage with the school on a deeper level and learn more. And better mousetraps should be built every day that look cool and catch mice with, well, elan. Yeah. Elan.
aron solomon bio
Techvibes recently described Aron Solomon in this way: "In building both his career and his image, Solomon has put in his time. He might be one of North America's foremost thinkers in education innovation."
A global strategist, entrepreneur, and advisor, Aron Solomon has close to thirty years of experience at the intersection of education and innovation. Having done much of what one can actually do in education - from teaching and coaching sports to fundraising, student recruitment, institutional strategy, and actually running schools - Aron was awarded a Ford Fellowship in 2003. As his leadership project, he launched the first independent school in-house consulting business, which became profitable in its first year.
Soon after, Aron became COO of a very early global e.learning initiative. In this role, he established and communicated a new online brand throughout the world with a focus on India and China. He was also the CEO and first employee of THINK Global School, the most innovative high school in the world, where students study in three international cities each academic year.
Aron is a serial entrepreneur who has launched everything from the first luxury-branded education pop-up, to a global education design studio, to a thriving innovation consultancy that imparts the attributes, values, and techniques of Silicon Valley to audiences around the world. Aron describes himself, ultimately, as "one who could never even consider doing something that doesn't at least aim at global change."
He holds an undergraduate degree in political theory, a graduate degree and teaching certificate in english and economics, and a juris doctor degree. He has also completed a certificate from the Kellogg School of Management in Chicago - where he had the great good fortune to be taught leadership by Dr. Deepak Chopra - and attended the Master Class from Sweden's Hyper Island.
A final point of note, Aron has traveled 3,000,000 miles in the business of education x innovation, including (as of July 2013) 55 trips to mainland China. He has accumulated - and used - a lot of Star Alliance airline points and eaten far too many flavorless chicken dishes.
