Sept. 16, 2010 SDF Dan Levin Box.net

On September 16, 2010 in Palo Alto at SAP, the SDForum Engineering Leadership SIG and sponsor Nearsoft hosted Dan Levin, COO of Box.net. His presentation was “Engineer to CEO – Business Leadership Lessons Learned in 25 Fun-filled Years, in 3 Parts.” He told his story of transition from engineer to leadership. Starting out as very technical he learned from the GE school and how venture capitalist worked. A turning point in his career came when his boss said “Dan, I love you, but if you don’t improve your interpersonal skills, I’m going to fire you.” So he learned and went on to work in digital video/interactive TV, health care, small business, consumer software, internet services and now is helping other engineers succeed in the cloud.
