Edwin Miller opens up his informative presentation on making data gathering and discovery more efficient with a hard-hitting lesson on the need to simplify information sharing within an organization. After three years of hard work, he had turned around his third company and was two hours away from signing a deal with a buyer, when suddenly, he and the board members got served by the company’s founders.
Though they had given up their decision-making power, the founders had claimed a right to the sharing of any critical information and developments within the company in their separation agreement. Unfortunately, this agreement had been drawn up 13 years prior to Miller’s entry into the company so he was unaware of the provision.
Miller began to phone the board as well as the company’s two law firms, asking if anyone had known about this clause. “Without a hesitation, one of the law firms said, ‘Yeah, I knew that,’” Miller recalls. After a long day of negotiations and attempts to mitigate the situation, he sat down and put his mind to work to prevent history from repeating itself in future situations. “I put into a set of diagnostics which I had been building for years everything I knew about sharing information with founders, because someone in my stakeholder network knew that and I didn’t ask him.”
Drawing from the wealth of expertise he’s acquired turning around four major companies, Edwin Miller helps your organization connect the dots between people, insight, content, data, and software. The four-time CEO plots out a roadmap that will show you how to efficiently bring these elements together to optimize your business. A high-energy speaker, Miller will open your eyes to the numerous opportunities to spur growth and innovation in your company.
