Insights from former Microsoft Australia CEO Steve Vamos

Along with ING Direct Australia’s CEO, I also had the pleasure of listening to former Microsoft Australia’s CEO, Steve Vamos. Here are some of the great pieces of information I took away:

  • Talent retention is key. It is a key responsibility of your leaders and managers to ensure talent is not only retained but absolutely enjoying their time with the organisation.
  • The two most important things in today’s economy are knowledge and connection. Whilst no leader can ever completely handle this, it is a journey that must be undertaken.
  • Success can no longer be defined on an individual basis. Steve didn’t have an answer, but he made it clear that we need to look at new ways of giving incentives and recognising success – it can no longer be just about the individual.

There are two more great things I took away from him, but they deserve their own post each.
