As we mentioned below, the blogger-in-chief was in sunny Palo Alto, California yesterday speaking to the Stanford Breakfast Series on the topic of negotiation. There was a great turnout (a testament to the marketing prowess of the Stanford folks, not to the delivery), and they even sold out of both copies of the best book ever written on negotiation which they had socked in for the speech. We signed a few copies, with the caveat that signed copies, as it turns out, are worth less than unsigned copies. Sad, really.
Thanks to Janet Wright and David Demarest of Stanford. Dave did an introduction that was way too flattering, but the crowd was awake and responsive. Drove past the Linear Accelerator, whatever the heck that is, but it’s really impressive. Also met Richard Reis, who’s the Executive Director of Stanford’s Alliance for Innovative Manufacturing. They are a great group with a very interesting site. We predict more collaboration between us and them in the coming months, and maybe a return visit to Stanford, one of the truly great universities in the world.
Here’s a link to the outline from yesterday’s speech. It was also videotaped, and we’ll post a link to that as soon as we have it. Sorry, there won’t be any whoppers a la Tom Friedman in there, but it won’t put you to sleep, either
