On this episode, Lisa Thee talks with Ed Soo Hoo, an executive coach who is also the Worldwide CTO Global Accounts at Lenovo and an Industry Fellow at the Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology at UC Berkeley. Ed helps drive innovation and transformation with his customers, and he does it through a unique lens that comes from his wealth of experiences in what he calls his blue collar, white collar, and no collar phases. With eight startups under his belt, Ed is a master of reinvention with a wealth of insights into technology and leadership trends and topics.
Ed describes himself as a catalyst, connector, and storyteller—and he lives up to the storyteller moniker here. He and Lisa discuss data and leadership in a wide-ranging conversation that will take you from Henry Ford to the metaverse, from the moon landing to the temple of Apollo at Delphi, and from Cadillacs to Ferraris to bumper cars. Along the way, they highlight how an innovation spark can come from the least expected situations and people and why it’s so important that data and diversity go hand in hand.
