What did they say?

We don’t have to give anyone creativity, we just have to unlock it!

Tom Kelley IDEO

I’ve always believed that the high beta jobs, the tough jobs, are the ones worth… If you believe in you, take the tough assignments. People will never remember you for how you got knocked down, but they will never forget you for how you get back up… and keep going.

Bill McdermottSAP CEO

Strategy can change, the mission stays. Mission is the most important thing.

Pilar LopezMicrosoft General Manager Spain

Be aware, if you have not been a victim, you will be a victim. Either directly or indirectly. In 10 seconds, 3 organizations are compromised. You cannot avoid this.
