Evote Conference Challenges Digital Government Leadership throughout EU

For those who have followed me for awhile, or heaven forbid worked for me in the past, you will know that I believe deeply that leadership does not vest in singular people but rather, in great organizations, permeates the group.  It is not asked of folks to give, it is voluntarily surrendered.  Leadership exists in all of us and requires the simplest change movement in existence, a personal decision to change and lead.  It does not require permission, a budget, a boss you love.  It does not require an org structure, specific strategy or an organization at all.  It requires you, to commit, personally, emotionally, to leading.

Great yet small post at Andrew P Wilson’s Blog, and I couldn’t agree more.  The movement for greater openness with regard to government data, or Government as a Platform, certainly contemplates this.  If we are embracing new ways of governing itself, shouldn’t we embrace a new view of leadership.  That the best singular leaders are those that enable the Government Platform, not that focus nearly exclusively on service delivery itself.  It is the leader that drives forward the leader in us all that means the most to society.

Matt Miszewski has been a leader of incredible teams, that accomplished unbelievable goals - together. From rebuilding an enterprise technology strategy from the ground up as Chief Information Officer of the State of Wisconsin to driving a struggling global sales and marketing team to live beyond their potential and helping take their stock from $45/sh to over $110/sh, I have been honored to take on huge challenges and beat them by building collaborative and high performing teams. I was proud to be a regular speaker on Digital Realty's earnings call each quarter and being able to brief and advise the Board of Directors each quarter. Focusing on our shareholders needs while coupling that focus with the needs of our top customers was the combination the street was searching for and our increase in equity value proves the effort worthwhile. Our focus on total leasing costs, net present value of long term leases, closing the gap on cash performance and elimination of stagnant inventory helped to drive a stalled stock. Most proud of standing up a revenue engine that will be used for decades including a renewed global salesforce, inside sales expertise, demand generation focus, new global Partners and Alliances program, sales operations team and a heightened focus on connecting lead development to sales outcomes (including a new social marketing program, AR/PR, digital presence, brand identity refresh, SEO/SEM and a regular campaigning process). Combining decades of technology leadership with this commercial success creates an incredible package to unleash revenue and hack growth for companies from any industry out there.
