Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - What Oscar Night can Teach us About Business

« What's in a Name? | Main | What Goes with Movies and is Sticky? »


Greg -- welcome to the conversation. As a business coach I hope you get your fair share of recognition for inspiring action in others. We have plenty of business awards. I wonder if we should follow Peter's advice here and make an effort to measure attitude or spirit more.

Gianandrea -- I too was surprised by how simply and humbly Morricone expressed his gratitude. Although if you look at his site, they call him "maestro"; a title that is well deserved.

moricone award moment was really touching. italian dailies reported that after the ceremony he asked if he had been ok or had made any mistake. and how funny is that such a worldwide known artist does not speak a single word of english....

That would be so cool, an Academy of Business Awards night! But then we would have to become a union. lol

We remember our teachers from school. What about our teachers in business? I remember, Norm, he was always telling me. "You have to learn to think on your feet." Thanks Norm.
