Tim Eades, CEO of vArmour made for a compelling guest at our Dojo Meetup on December 5th. Though we promised “Vegas Rules” on specific antidotes and people, here’s a few of the nuggets of wisdom I took away from our chat:

  • The future is NOT “4-legged” sales calls, it’s high velocity, value delivery driven, product led, low touch sales – Think AppDynamics, NewRelic, Atlassian NOT Oracle, SAP or Peoplesoft
  • Leadership is about giving – you need to give to get, and what you give will come back many times
  • Leaders don’t put themselves above, they stand “Shoulder to Shoulder” with those they lead
  • Give innovators permission and space, and you’ll be amazed at the transformative things they can deliver
  • There’s never been a better time to be a marketing leader, but you better know your stuff!
  • Put your customer at the center of everything, and marketing can make that happen

These are just a few of the takeaways I had.  What did you learn?
