Instructor Allan Thomas Chiulli, author of the best-selling book Winning In The Digital Tornado (2018, 263 pages), after selecting his replacement as CEO of his equity trading fintech company, began to actively engage in Austin TX’s startup and technology scene. However, Allan quickly discovered that he did not understand what the people at these meetups were talking about. He realized that his micro-focus on equity trading technology had led him to miss out on the rapid changes created by digital transformation. Upon searching for and failing to find an online course to bring him up-to-speed on the Digital Age, Allan embarked on a personal research and learning program that resulted in his writing Winning In The Digital Tornado, a book for business people seeking to catch up and thrive in a Digital Age. Allan subsequently founded DigElearn with Yuan Qu to assist with this mission.
Allan has created startups in equity trading, asset management and financial planning, holds 14 U.S. patents, is developing a blockchain and token platform for Wall Street research and is a contributing writer for Retirement Daily. He is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate with a B.A. in Political Science and an M.S. in Geology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and earned an M.B.A. in Finance from California State University at Long Beach. Allan lives in Austin TX with his wife Bea and enjoys cooking, running and, of course, digital transformation.
