Valor Manufacturing Training
Consultation with
Robert Farrell

Greetings! I’m Robert, but you can call me Bob. I’m a native New Yorker (the Bronx!) who has been fortunate enough to live all around our great country through my work. Most recently, my wife and I left the traffic and headache of southern California behind us for the mountains and fresh air of Colorado Springs with our daughter. 

I have been in Professional and Educational Publishing for 30 years.  I have enjoyed many roles including Sales, Sales Management, Content Acquisition and Development.  Over the years, I noticed trends that changed my perspective on Higher Education. Students are less prepared for college, especially in STEM oriented courses. I also saw an astounding increase in community college students not graduating or moving on to four-year institutions. This trend has shaped my new passion to change the stigma that skilled trades are a fallback or “Plan B”. I want to eliminate the "four-year-degree" narrative of high school teachers and guidance counselors and shed a positive light that learning a skilled trade takes years of hard work, takes bravery and can be very lucrative. 

Away from work, I am taking full advantage of our new home in Colorado Springs.  I love to run and workout as well as hike with my family all over Colorado. And, in the winter you’ll find me swooshing down the slopes!
