The Idea for My New Book
The inspiration for my new book, Unleashing the Innovators, came from my days as Global Marketing Officer at P&G. At that time, Google was a young, exciting company out in the Bay Area. I met Tim Armstrong (now CEO of Oath) when he was leading Google’s Americas Sales Operations. We realized we could learn a lot from each other’s cultures, so we decided to do an employee exchange. WSJ caught wind of it and put it on the cover.
Fast forward a few years, and I’ve realized this is still such an important topic. I decided to pitch the idea for a new book. Here’s what happened.
