Jarvis touches on how the concept of private and public has changed, and outlines the positives of a new-found openness. To make his point, he highlights his own experience sharing his cancer diagnosis with the world via Twitter.
With CMOs from corporate America watching, Jarvis conveys the importance of embracing openness.
This concept is slowly gaining traction with corporate America, but the adoption pales in comparison to the way tech startups have embraced openness over the last few years.
Startup founders regularly blog about their experiences, recent company developments and important decisions.
