Jennings Asks Tough Questions in Provoking Address

ESX Staff
I  June 25, 2014

eyeopenerYesterday John Jennings, CEO of Safeguard Securty, asked some tough questions that forced some of the ESXers in the crowd to think about their track for developing their youth — the future of their companies — in his talk entitled, "Dinosaurs, Sabre Tooth Tigers, Woolly Mammoths and You? How not to be the next extinct species."


"Your risk quota changes when you get older," said Jennings. "I'm not running out of ideas. I'm running out of time. So, we need to foster our youth — train them to lead."

He talked about young professionals' strengths, their knack for technology and communicating. Not only what many of the folks in the crowd could teach the younger members of their companies, but what they could learn from them as well. He told those in the audience with organizational charts to throw them away.

"Instead of just answering their questions, ask them questions in return," he said. "Everyone is responsible for the growth of your company."

He inspired the crowd to grow their businesses, to stay relevant for consumers, to really think about their weaknesses and work on them. Asking questions, like: Will the products and services you provide today be relevant next year? How will you measure up and are you ready for the challenge? What's the biggest thing standing in your way of success? Paradigms are changing, are you?

Many in the crowd nodded. Many jotted notes. Most left the ballroom with a bit of pep in their step, ready to grow, tackle challenges and look toward the future.

"Don't ever waste a single moment," said Jennings. "If you have an opportunity to do something special, seize it."
