Episode 2 of the Get Smart About People and the Workplace Podcast is a conversation with Chris Gillian.
Chris Gillian is one of the co-founders of Gazzang which was ultimately acquired by Cloudera. He recently held the positions of Director of Corporate Development and Senior Vice President of Corporate Development at Capital Factory here in Austin, Texas. He is currently the co-founder of Emerald Labs, an offshore software development company based out of Pakistan and the US. Chris talks from his perspective about what a tech start up company means to him and what it means to people working together for a common goal, that ultimately is long hours hunting that whale of a customer. He talks about how culture can offer a tradition of celebration which helps blow off steam and reduce stress. You will also learn a way to recruit new talent.
Chris is a great leader, mentor, innovator, and trend setter. You will come away from this episode with a smile on your face, which is the way I end up every time I have the fortune of talking with Chris. So many Easter eggs that I know you will find interesting as well. Welcome to GET SMART ABOUT PEOPLE & THE WORKPLACE!!!
