Meg Whitman's keynote at HP Discover

What really stood out in the keynote session given by Meg Whitman this morning was the focus on the customer. “You’re the center of our universe … our people will do anything for you,” Whitman said, backing it up with stories about how HP has gone the extra mile for customers, including donning body armor in Afghaniststan to help the UK military set up and maintain its systems in a war zone.

 

We’re at a technology inflection point today, Whitman told the crowd, and hearkening back to her days as chief executive at eBay, she said the question is whether you will be a disruptor – or the disrupted.
