As someone who has grown businesses — from Fortune 500s and silicon valley web start-ups — for 20 years, Nilofer Merchant knows how to piece together exactly and only the parts that matter (frameworks, strategies, and cultural values) — to get the needed results.
She’s worked for major companies like Apple, and Autodesk, and startups in the early, early days of the Web (Golive/ later bought by Adobe). Over the years, many blue chip brands have turned to her for advice. Logitech, Symantec, HP, Yahoo, VMWare, and many others have turned to her guidance to develop new product strategies, enter new markets, defend against competitors, and optimize revenues.
In this talk, Ms. Merchant suggests a small idea that just might have a big impact on your life and health: Next time you have a one-on-one meeting, make it into a “walking meeting” — and let ideas flow while you walk and talk.
