For a very special episode of The Innovation Engine podcast, we welcome 3Pillar CEO David DeWolf back into the studio for our 100th episode. David was the very first guest to appear on the podcast, and he has been on the podcast numerous times to discuss technology trends and corporate leadership.
For this episode, we talk about David’s journey as an entrepreneur and the path he has taken over the course of the last 10 years to go from a company with fewer than 10 employees at the outset to one that now has more than 700 employees worldwide. Among the keys David cites as critical to his success are a true passion for what he does and the ability to hire the right people and then trust them to do their jobs well.
We also discuss some of the trends that were the hottest topics at this summer’s major technology conference, including the invasion of the bots and the connected home.
