Hi Travis! You came to mind as I reflected on this past year. It was incredible getting to meet you and work with you directly when we did the "word association" exercise together at Workday's virtual Pre-sales Summit in October. Your energy and outlook on the world are deeply inspiring and I was captivated the entire time. I'm so drawn to the psychology of the "yes, and" mindset in my work and in my personal life. There are very few people I've come across where I feel this passionate about the work you're doing.
— Jordan A. | Workday employee
