The Inside Working of Google
When speaker Chris Sacca delivers talks around the world—whether to Fortune 500 Companies, major conventions, leading universities, or start-ups and nonprofits—he use a series of lessons learned at Google, on the Obama campaign, and at Twitter as common touch points for understanding the impact that the web's transformation has on each of us, regardless of our industry, location, or age. Google, Twitter, and the Obama campaign’s use of social media are among the most powerful movements in technological history, and the social consequences are exciting and hold great potential.
Whether Sacca talks about cutting-edge models of customer service and engagement, user-first product development techniques, elements of building uniquely innovative and nimble corporate cultures, or attracting the most capable people to them, his audiences always go home realizing that the ideas and lessons they encountered are applicable well beyond the bounds of their specific job functions and are fundamental principles for life as well.
In this keynote speech, speaker Chris Sacca discusses the principles that Google was founded on and how these same principles can be used to create nimble, creative, and successful businesses and corporate cultures. Some key points include:
"On behalf of the members and staff of ASAE & The Center for Association Leadership, I want to thank Chris for sharing his time and providing his expertise at the Technology Conference this week. His presentation was truly excellent. I wish that we had had a longer time with him. There was so much interest in his content. In fact, throughout the day yesterday I heard several of our attendees reference his presentation. We also thank him for allowing us to video and audio record his session. We’d like to make the recording available to our members who weren’t able to attend to show them what they missed.
Thanks for posting on Twitter about us and thanks too for using our hashtag! That was terrific. ASAE & The Center for Association Leadership are committed to consistently providing our members with high-quality educational programs. We are pleased that this program was in keeping with those standards and goals. We are unable to hold programs such as this without the knowledge and participation of thought leaders like him and we are grateful for the time and energy he put into the preparation.
He has inspired us to try to incorporate some of Google’s philosophy and principles into our operations (especially the part about having food every 150 feet!)."
