In Detail

Don Strickland was the visionary behind the world's first consumer digital camera, which he developed as Kodak's VP of Digital Imaging and launched into the market after joining Apple. As Apple's VP of Imaging and Publishing he led the re-architecture of Apple's computer platform for the publishing market from traditional print media to "new media" including the Internet, music and video. He left Apple to become CEO of Silicon Valley startup, PictureWorks Technology, and was a pioneer of the Web 2.0 business model. He took the company public through a merger with IPIX, and built the market value to $1.6 billion.


Don draws upon his personal experience to show how culture can lead a company to bankruptcy (Kodak) or turn a company around that was almost bankrupt into becoming one of the most valuable companies in the world (Apple). Don shares his unique insights into how really great companies build really great cultures that support innovation, attract entrepreneurs and create passionate employees.
