Impressions from Silicon Valley (Part III): Not only about work

Two weeks ago I spent four days in Silicon Valley & San Francisico. I took part in the 'Work in progress' inspiration tour of Nexxworks.

I enjoyed it so much that I would like to share some of my insights.

In this last part*, I would like to take you on a short tour with some of the most striking innovations that came along on our trip.

*The first part was about the major HR trends that are currently hot in 'The Bay Area' and that will undoubtedly have an impact in the near future

*The second part was about, future-fit leadership.
