We at Social Content Group think Bing Gordon has an important message for any CEO out there.
In the video below, Bing Gordon discusses his thoughts on how to be a CEO in the era of the “consumer internet”, which is a completely different era than the first big Dot Com boom. Everything is social these days by default, and Bing Gordon is a master in the field. This is a keynote address from the 2011 Endeavor Entrepreneur Summit.
One of the most brilliant minds in consumer internet today is Bing Gordon, partner at VC firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. He joined the firm in 2008, and watches over the sFund, which is dedicated to all things social.
Here is our faverate new word from the video.
meritocracy [mer-i-tok-ruh-see] noun, plural -cies.
- an elite group of people whose progress is based on ability and talent rather than on class privilege or wealth.
- system in which such persons are rewarded and advanced: The dean believes the educational system should be a meritocracy.
- leadership by able and talented persons.
At around 19 minutes it’s not a short viewing but the knowledge he imparts is priceless. Listen while he talks about this new word and how to approach it from the prospective of a CEO.
