The @Google team welcomes Pamela Slim to Google’s Mountain View office on August 2, 2010 to discuss her book, “Escape from Cubicle Nation: From Corporate Prisoner to Thriving Entrepreneur.” She is introduced by Jenny Blake.
“The creative destruction of the world economy in the last two years has brought plenty of angst, but also a refreshing alternative to traditional employment. No longer tethered to one job configuration (employee, entrepreneur, contractor), people are finding creative ways to weave passions and interests into their work.
Author Pamela Slim gives thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs start-up advice each year, but believes that workplaces of all sizes can benefit from a fresh view of career development. Learn the keys to creating a stimulating and rewarding work life which includes non-mafia management, rapid testing of new business ideas, High Councils of Jedi Knights, creative posses, personal backbone and a life plan that is based on your definition of success, not your parent’s.”
