Business Lessons from the Pope

Following up on my occasional Make it Happen series on my blog

My friend Andreas Widmer authored a book The Pope & the CEO – a book about lessons learned from his time as a Vatican Swiss Guard. In the book he discusses his successes (running 2 companies, SVP or worldwide marketing for Dragon Software), and consulting for developing economies in Rwanda and Afghanistan; and his failures (the fradulent buyout of Dragon causing 100% losses for all shareowners).

He also discusses his ideas on the development of Africa – see the great interview here:
