Bob Savage was one of the first employees of EMC in Ireland when they set up their international location in Cork in 1988. Twenty-five years on, he’s now Vice President & General Manager of the EMC Ireland Centre of Excellence, which employs over 3,000 people in the Cork region.
In this conversation, you’ll learn about what motivates Bob as well as hearing about some of the ‘secret sauce’ that has underpinned EMC’s success. You’ll hear about the importance of culture within an organisation and you may not look at rocket lettuce in the same light again.
I think you’ll also understand why Bob was voted Ireland’s Most Trusted Leader in 2012.
And some additional bonus resources:
- Paul O’Mahony recorded this wonderful audio, in the style of David Attenborough as he belatedly went in search of lesser spotted Smarter Eggs (contains the full Q&A at the end of Bob’s interview).
- Greg Canty captured his many takeaways from the night in this comprehensive blog post.
This conversation was recorded at a Smarter Egg event at Upstairs at the White Horse, Ballincollig, Ireland in November 2013. Smarter Egg clients from across the business spectrum were in attendance, along with some invited guests. The video footage was filmed and edited by Ian Armstrong of Onevision Multimedia.
