Quotes from past shows:
Chris Wright – President of the Minnesota Timberwolves:: “For those of you that are sort of in the trenches on this stuff keep fighting with people like me. You know to get the resources that you need to really develop the digital space inside of whatever sports property it is that you work for. You know you guys are the trailblazers, you are where the great world of sports is going from the communication standpoint and you know remember that it is one on one marketing, figure out your consumers. Figure out the way that they want to be communicated with and make sure that you fight for the resource. Get into that president’s office or the VP of communications make sure you fight the resources that you need to be able to communicate with your fans.”
How a Multi-Million Dollar Software Company Prospers Without an Office
In the wake of Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer’s recent decree that all Yahoo! employees must now report to work at a physical office, 21st century companies (large and small) are asking: Does remote working really work?
Given the buzz (and Internet indignation) around Ms. Mayer’s decision, I wanted to try and find an example of a company that’s surviving — even thriving — using what’s been called a distributed work model.
After some searching, I found my test case: a 27-employee software company from Boulder, CO (and all over the US and Canada really)
We spent a few days at SXSW with the executives, managers, and employees of Copyblogger, finding out how they do what they do without a physical office, and why they think it works. Copyblogger has an annual meeting to talk face to face with each other. This year they met at SXSW in Austin.
I think you’ll be fascinated by their story, and the success they’ve earned, while only physically meeting as an entire company once a year.
Sarah Hill had a HIRL(Hangout in Real Life) at SXSW and Chris Yates did this video interview with her. They met for the first time after doing numerous Google+ Hangouts over the past year. The exchange and interaction was fun to see and also a great story to tell.
Sarah Hill works for Veterans United and she talks about the Virtual Photo Walks they are doing for veterans around the world.
