Each month, “Christopher Lochhead on Different” episodes will explore the need to differentiate people, products, and services in a world that encourages a lot of imitation. A best-selling author, top podcaster, and former tech-industry CMO, Chris is a student of not only business and technology and marketing but also human nature, human folly, human genius, and very human joy.
In this episode, Chris celebrates the fact that tech companies (including Zoom, Pinterest, and Lyft) are going public again. Chris and I discuss how IPOs benefit not only founders and investors, but also employees. Plus – how corporations can drive make the world better by creating room for dreamers to try. What it means to be a “personal entrepreneur,” where your employer is not your employer but your client. And why, if you’re not inspired by some of the progress we’re making in tech, you must not be paying attention.
TLDR, in Chris’ words: “Innovation! Technology! IPOs! Growth! America!”
