IDG Connect, Craig Malloy (cmalloy), March 15, 2016



What was the most valuable piece of career advice that you received?
For me, it was a case of learning from experiences. I started my career as a military officer and from my experience in the role I learned the importance of taking care of my team, putting their interests ahead of my own and leading from the front. The leadership skills that I developed over 9 years have served me very well in business, helping me to become the CEO I am today.

What was the worst piece of business advice that you received?
My first boss once said to me ‘let’s not confuse effort with results’ and it has always stuck with me. While it’s not the most constructive and motivating thing to hear for certain personalities, it is somewhat humorous and of course there is some truth in it – I admit that I do sometimes use it with my kids at home!
