Yes, the big kahuna. A brilliant, scattered, Lebanese man with the attention span of a gnat. A celebrity executive who enjoys speaking at conventions and being quoted in the trade rags. Today he invited me to one of his presentations, so I met him at 6:45 AM, and we took a ride in his new BMW. Crawling along at 25 mph and listening to Jimmy Buffet’s greatest hits was surreal, but one can’t be too picky about excuses to escape from the office.
So what do executives talk about when they get together? I couldn’t make it up if I tried:
- ink-enabled devices that work through the mobility spectrum
- business productivity advisors
- “This is just a scenario. This is not a promise of something we’ll actually deliver.”
- 38% of the day is spent not optimizing technology
Love that last one.
