Mike and Sujeet cover a ton of great stuff in this episode, including how mentors have positively impacted his life, his leadership style and how it works in a very large corporation, what’s unique about him and the one thing he most wants to accomplish. And along the way, he makes some bold predictions and, just for the fun of it, explains in layman’s terms, what an Algorithm is. As you listen, you’ll probably say to yourself, “I’d like to work with that guy”
