Q&A WITH BO LAURENT

 

What’s a typical work day like for you?

Up at 6AM. Meditate. Walk dog. Video conference meetings with colleagues in Boston and London start 8AM or so (I am in California). Meetings all morning, gym at 10:30, then a quiet afternoon to work on Salesforce and Zuora admin and development.

How did you get started in your current field/industry?

Salesforce.com donated licenses to the nonprofit I had founded (http://isna.org/).

 

What do you like to do for fun in your spare time?

Road cycling (I rode around Lake Tahoe last summer), watching and reading Japanese media to keep up my fluency, cooking.
