New York, tribes and lunch with Seth

I’m in New York since Tuesday. I flew in to attend Seth Godin’s presentation of his new book Tribes. On Wednesday, Seth gave a passionate presentation in the New York Times building. It was great, not only because of what he had to say about leadership, but also I finally got to meet some fellow-triiibesmembers I’d only met online before.

  4. […] Een hele ervaring. Niet alleen omdat het mijn eerste keer in The Big Apple was, maar vooral ook door wat Godin te vertellen had. Ik had de voorbije twee maanden samen met 3000 andere mensen deelgenomen aan Seths Triiibes-experiment rond zijn boek. Ik was dan ook reuzebenieuwd naar zijn wat hij te vertellen had. […]
