Becoming an Executive


Had a conversation last night with a CEO of a $1B+ service provider company.

He’s heading out of town next week, to speak at an industry function, ‘How to Become an Executive’? to a group of ‘under 30’ industry professionals.

(I remember being under 30 … many … many … many … years ago).

OK, what are you going to speak to?

Highlights of his 15 minute presentation:

1. Do what other people do not want to do

2. Hit your numbers

3. Be someone who can be trusted

Which of these do you think is the most important?

58-83, sunshine.

Make it a great day, everyone!
