If you are in technology, venture capital, or business in general; you’re probably familiar with Maynard Webb. Maynard is the Chairman of the Board at Yahoo!, board member at Salesforce and Visa, former Chief Operating Officer at eBay, best-selling author of Rebooting Work: Transform How You Work in the Age of Entrepreneurship, and the founder of the Webb Investment Network (among many other things). He really is one of the most influential people in the world of business and technology today and I had the privilege of meeting him in person for a conversation on this week’s episode of the Future of Work Podcast.
We talk about concepts from his book including the employee experience, the role that Millennials play in the future of work, employee engagement, full-time employment vs freelancing, and the impact of technology. Maynard also shares why people need to take professional and personal development into their own hands instead of relying on educational institutions and organizations. Finally, we discuss where Maynard sees the future of work in the next five to ten years, and he shares his advice to management and employees.
Maynard is definitely someone that you want to pay attention to. Enjoy this episode and let me know what you think!
