Hear what executives are saying:

  • “The real secret of success, in my opinion, is when you are in an environment where there are many people smarter than you. In those situations, it's not about competing with those people, but finding ways to add value while also learning from them.”  (Gil Shewd, CEO of Check Point)

  • “Learning is essential to our aspiration to be a great company.  Great performance and profitability go hand in hand with continuous learning. To stay on top of our industry, we must be ‘in the know’ every day.  It's a key element in staying competitive.”  (Jim Owens, CEO of Caterpillar)

  • “It doesn’t matter who you are, you can always benefit from having someone to talk to, to bounce your ideas off, to give you feedback.”  (John Sunderland, Chairman of Cadbury Schweppes)

  • “They come with motives deeper and more complicated than a mere desire to acquire organized and accredited knowledge about a subject.  One of the chief things that they come for is the presence of others – someone responsive to your questions, attentive to your particular concerns, capable of cracking jokes about the events of the day, someone with the full range of human quirks and oddities, and yet also someone for whom the subject forms a living and present reality, and with whom you can have a personal relationship.”  (Wilfred M. McClay)
