Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - What's in a Name?

« Michelin Man gets a Makeover, Company Rallies Around Sustainable Road Mobility | Main | What Oscar Night can Teach us About Business »



As the old song went, there's a time for every purpose. I think some resources say more about the blogger than they mean to say about who's 'in'. I have mentors who do not blog and I'm sure they won't mind me not naming them here. That's the point about context.

Things are always flux and we continuously redefine our own "boundaries" all the time. I expect if I do my job of learning and participating to this conversation well enough, this blog will look very different in the future.


bizsolutionsplus is just right. Thank you for asking.


Goes without saying that I'm honored to be called out in your post. You've made wonderful contributions in this space and I share your passion for execution.

And I would also like to say bravo for being bold enough to name names. There is often times a little voice inside of us that says to do the opposite. We never want to hurt the feelings of others who we may leave out. But then another voice speaks up and says "this will help others—because it helps me".

When Roger asked me who influenced me in my early days of blogging, writing—I had no issue with naming names because it was all true, and truth can go along way. Expecially when combined with empathy.

Keep up the wonderful work here.
