w3w3 Photos on LifePics
Communications Technology Professionals (CTP) celebrated Executive of the Year, Greg Maffei, CEO, Liberty Media. It was a very interesting evening. People came from everywhere - I spoke to one man based in Texas. He'd spent the past three days in Taiwan and came to the 'Brown' straight from his return flight into DIA. It was apparent that the respect and appreciation was at a very high level. Mayor Hickenlooper's wife reminded him, he said, this wasn't a roast. But in his typical fashion, he had fun introducing Greg Maffei. As for "the man" himself, he was all about enjoying and sharing the honor, surrounded by his lovely wife and four children. Graciously thanking everyone, he pointed out that with all the blessings and perks there were also stresses and strains that fell on the shoulders of his wife and children. Kind of makes one proud. Ethics in American business and family looked pretty healthy. Photos and Greg Maffei in his own words... - SEE Photo Ablum 3/24/08

386_ Liberty Global - Leading-Edge Coupled with Ultimate Integrity
Michael Fries, CEO and President of Liberty Global grew up with a large family, 7 brothers and sisters. Mike said, "In many ways I think my skills perhaps in listening to people, managing people and having a pretty good EQ or a sense of where people are coming from is partially related to the fact that I grew up in a big family."
Mike reflected on his early work career, "I’ve only had two jobs. I’ve been lucky to work for, at least in my cable career, two really fantastic entrepreneurs and business people. The first was Gene Schneider, really one of the pioneers in the cable industry – just a fantastic individual. A great leader of men but more than anything has great integrity. And of course, John Malone, our current chairman, and I don’t think you could have a better partner or individual to be working with, who is far-and-away one of the smartest business people I’ve ever come across. But on top of that is a great human being, a really nice individual, loyal and generous. He really loves and is excited by this business. It’s kind of TCI-2. So I’ve been lucky to work for some really great individuals. Sue Wyman and Larry did some more probing.

267_ Consumers May Win in the Communications Battle
What do telecom, cable, wireless and satellite have in common? Businesses & consumers could benefit from the duopoly transition to unlimited choices.
2006 was a year that delivered mega-mergers and acquisitions of industry giants and neophytes. The promise of convergence was realized and triple play and quadruple play bundling options became the norm. Cable and telecommunications companies battled for the wallet of both corporations and consumers and satellite companies collaborated and searched for products to round out their offerings. User generated content exploded into the limelight with the $1.65B Google acquisition of YouTube.

591_ James Crowe, Level 3: Fundamentally We Have a Healthy Industry
The press conference with James Crowe at the Broadband Summit on the Level 3 campus with Larry Nelson, w3w3.com and Jeff Smith, Rocky Mountain News was held right after Jim's keynote keynote address at the Silicon Flatirons: Colorado Broadband Summit. When asked what he would like to see happen with the new administration Jim said, "I would like to see President Elect, Barac Obama get the ‘credit crisis’ under control...I’d like to see the flood flow start back up. You know the economic body had a heart attack and government’s come in with the paddles and tried to get the heart started again, get the money flowing. Then you’ve got to survey the damage while the heart stopped. Industry after industry has suffered stress, and we’re going to have to look at getting the broader economy going again.” When asked about the challenges with the broadband industry Jim replied, "Fundamentally we have a healthy industry. That doesn’t mean that everyone within the industry is healthy. But, in tough times people tend to communicate more. They tend to stay home, entertain themselves at home; they tend to substitute telephone communications for cars and planes. Businesses tend to communicate more and for the same reasons consumers do, less travel more communications – we’re doing that. We just finished installing 30 more high definition video conference systems in all of our locations, and the usage has skyrocketed." Listen, there's more...

491_ Profile of a Leader: Advice to Those Climbing the Ladder
"It boils down to 3 things, and I get the opportunity to do this with my consulting teams a lot," says Gregg Sutherland, Principle, Business Advisory Services Ernst & Young, Denver office. Larry Nelson and Sue Wyman, Chairman of the Communications Technology Professionals (CTP) and founder of the Jivaro Group asked Gregg to expand. Gregg said, "The first advice I'd give is to take the opportunity to really learn, to test, and to apply. I had this fellow working for me, genius smart but a little rough around the edges and he could be hard to get along with at times. He came to me and said, "I'm trying something new on this project. I've watched you do this, I've watched the client do that... I'm trying these different behaviors to see what fits me." He was intentional about learning. The second is to recognize that anywhere you work, there's going to be a flawed environment. There's also going to be someone that’s hard to get along with, there's always going to be someone not as capable as you’d like. The organization is going to make bad decisions from time to time. It's going to be frustrating and, it’s easy to get negative, and at that point the world really separates into two camps, the ones who sit around and complain and the people who say, "You know, it's not right, but here's what I can do about it.... and I can't fix the whole thing but I can fix that part." Gregg goes onto explain more...

468_ This is a Story Only James Crowe Could Tell - Level 3 Communications
Phil Weiser, Professor of Law, Associate Dean for Research & Executive Director of Silicon Flatirons Center, introduces James Crowe, CEO and President of Level 3 Communications (since it’s founding). Phil went on to say, “He is a unique individual in the Internet world. Before that he was also the founder and CEO of MFS Communications, one of the leaders in building fiber networks. James Crowe is really a unique part of our communications world here.” Larry Nelson and Phil ask James a number of probing questions in this 'Profile of a Leader' series for the Communications Technology Professionals (CTP) Channel. Looking at the changes we have all been through, James said,"Yes, things have changed a bit. I think it’s gone from speculative, way out thinking to an everyday part of most people’s lives. We take it for granted that we can obtain almost any kind of information we choose over our broadband connections. It certainly has changed the way we work, the way we entertain ourselves. We’re watching real time as it changes how we govern ourselves – politics is changing. Because fundamentally for 100 years we had a communication system that extended our ears, that’s the telephone system. Now we’re right along, building a communications system that’s extending our eyes. Ninety-nine percent of the information we collect comes through our eyes." Then Phil and Larry brought up values and ethics. Listen to the answers in his own words.

471_ What do Bill Gates, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, James Crowe Have in Common?
"What do you recommend to entrepreneurs trying to build a business, to focus on, have in mind to be successful?" was one of many questions asked by Phil Weiser and Larry Nelson and directed to James Crowe, CEO and President of Level 3 Communications. James said, "Asked often, my answer is always the same. Passion! Quite a number of people want to be entrepreneurs because of the rewards. They think that Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Google are who they want to be. Or Bill Gates, or fill in the blank… of people who very prominently had the success from that “great entrepreneurial idea”. One ought to undertake that kind of effort, clearly understanding that you give up a great deal. Balance in your life is gone. You have to spend an enormous amount of time working on your idea, to the exclusion of what many others think are the normal things in life. And if you do it to simply because you think you’ll get rich, you run a high probability of disappointment. If you do it because you are passionate about your belief, or idea or your effort – then the reward is separate and distinct from any monetary returns. I'd say unless you enter it with that kind of belief, you’re going to have every opportunity to be very unhappy with the outcome." They also asked him what the turning point in his life was.
