I consume a ton of business content. You probably do too. Occasionally I run across something so compelling that I need to share it.
Scott Galloway is a professor of marketing at NYU Stern School of Business, but before that built businesses in e-commerce and data intelligence. He is about my age and was also born in November, so I thought he would like me. I reached out to him last year to try and get him on the VACEOs stage for you. So far, no luck. He’s in high demand.
Neverthless, I am attracted to disrupters, and Galloway is a prince in that kingdom. In a smart way.
My friend Verne Harnish got Professor Galloway to speak at a recent online Scaling Up Summit, and Verne was generous enough to share @profgalloway’s 12-minute, 60-slide thrill-ride of a talk with readers of his newsletter (you should subscribe to it).
HERE’S the compelling part! Take 12 minutes to watch Scott Galloway’s talk RIGHT HERE. I guarantee it will stir something inside you – hope, imagination, greed, cursing, fear, wonder. It will be worth it. Let me know if not. Just take it easy on the expletives.
