I'm sitting at Inbound 2014 Day Two waiting for Malcolm Gladwell to take the stage for the morning keynote. I had a full day of sessions yesterday and wanted to provide 1-2 sentence summaries of the main lessons I gained. Here you go!
Simon Sinek, Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Come Together And Others Don't (Keynote): Building a truly great culture requires true leadership. Leaders sacrifice themselves, their perks, their comfort for others; in return people give their blood, sweat, tears, effort and time.
Clive Thompson, The Pencil And The Keyboard: How The Way You Write Changes The Way You Think: Handwriting is better for taking notes, remembering and big picture thinking. Typing is better for composing your ideas and communicating with others.
David Berkowitz, A Story About The End Of Storytelling: stop telling stories to your customers and start helping them make their own stories.
Sloane Davidson, Put Down Your Phone And Launch A Movement!: Put the phone away, be mindful of what you're eating, and who you're eating it with. #dinnermode
Dharmesh Shah & Brian Halligan, Keynote: too much to summarize in a sentence or two. Pray they release the keynote to the public.
If you're at Inbound send me a tweet!
Let's see what day two holds!
