Masa will be taking an Interactive Session on “Improving quality efficiency and efficacy with XSCALE” – Track 1 on Day 2
We had posted some questions to Masa as a part of his #ATAMyStory
1. Why do you think speaking at #ATAGTR2019 really matters to you?
Because the Retreat is a fabulous medium to communicate my experiences and knowledge, which I hope can be useful to others.
2. Do you think that organizations and individuals should go out and mingle more in community programs?
Definitely yes. It is an accelerated means to learning and sharing, in addition to being a channel to getting to know amazing people, which can be the spark to new business relationships, the creation of new technologies that change the world, and friendships.
3. While practice makes all of us perfect, share an everyday practice that has made things better for you at work
I have two daily practices: Waking up early to go to the mountains to clear my mind and introspect; and dedicating some quiet time to think about how to make something better.
4. Anything else you want to share
Stay thirsty for new knowledge, hungry for new relationships, and passionate about making the world a better place for ourselves and —most importantly— for future generations.
