Geoffery A Moore Speaker/Author

Geoffrey A Moore

Staying Grounded and Getting Connected in a Time of Disruption. 

Author of Crossing the Chasm, The Gorilla Game, Inside the Tornado, and newest masterpiece Zone to Win.  Mr. Moore is an author, speaker, and advisor who splits his consulting time between start-up companies in the Wildcat Venture Partners portfolios and established high-tech enterprises.

In this time of COVID, it is more important than ever that people stay grounded and get connected.  The whole company looks to its senior management at this time for inspiration and guidance.  But who do those executives get to turn to?  Well, one person is you.  So how can you be most of help?  In this chalk talk, Geoff Moore will share a framework he learned from one of his favorite CEOs, Marc Benioff.  It is called V2MOM (for Vision, Values, Methods, Obstacles, and Measures), and it has proved exceptionally valuable in helping both individuals and teams stay grounded and get connected to their work.  Geoff will walk us through each of the stages of the model and then lead a discussion about how one might draw upon these ideas as we help our executives step up in these trying times.

Mr. Moore will be speaking to what it will take to survive and thrive as business pivots and employee roles change. Most importantly how to Stay Grounded and Getting Connected in a Time of Disruption.
