always keep our meeting objectives clear
I met Russell several years ago while I was representing Splunk to Verizon. From our very first meeting, it was clear that he saw the “big picture”. He combined a business perspective with technical perspective very well, and that enabled him to ask good questions, provide good coaching, and always keep our meeting objectives clear. I have enjoyed working with Russ in the past, and hope that we have the chance to work together more directly in the future.
