When Harry Moseley “failed at retirement” and instead became the Global CIO of a pre-IPO Zoom Video Communications, he began a quest to share his beliefs about the company and its vision to audiences around the world. Known for his past achievements as a world-renowned business executive, and lauded for his contributions on not-for-profit boards, Harry was already a respected leader with strong communication skills.
Yet, Harry never forgot the words of a favorite teacher from his youth: “Every day, commit to learning something new. Whether it’s personal or professional, big or small, keep on learning!”
Harry focused his decades of learning on creating more meaningful experiences for everyone. How might a television interview become a collaboration with the audience? Can a big stage presentation integrate voices that aren’t mic’d or shown on camera? Harry’s determination to optimize each communication opportunity led him to me.
As we worked together, Harry adjusted his priorities on panel discussions from him and the moderator to his audience. While most speakers answer questions looking at the moderator, he turns to the audience, engaging viewers and giving them a critical role in the discussion. His passion as an evangelist for his company connects with everyone and brings them right into the room. In tune with his audience, whether they are fellow CIOs in a boardroom, sales people gathered in a conference room or elated product users squeezed shoulder to shoulder in an auditorium, Harry shares his unwavering beliefs through his engaging, empowering and energizing charm… every single time.
