Ted jokes his way to better coworker connections
Ted Barton first stepped on a comedy stage as a junior at the University of Central Florida. Since then, he’s even followed an acoustic set at an open mic by the lead singer of “We The Kings” and recently did a show in New York City.
In this episode, Ted and I talk about how doing comedy allowed him to be more creative at solving problems, have better analytical skills and, most importantly, develop his true self. He worked in several internships through college and noticed a common denominator of people not sharing their personal lives for fear of appearing less professional. But Ted feels the culture can be improved, started with the firm leadership, “but it can stop with the individual if they have some bad preconceived notions.”
Ted Barton is currently an independent contractor for financial firms.
He graduated from the University of Central Florida with an Accounting degree. He participated in Younglife College, Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, and the IMA Accounting Honor Society.
