The last post!


Dear Readers, I would like to let you know that I decided to close the RedSneakersBlog. I am pulled into many exciting initiatives, and I am unable to continue it. I would like to thank you for reading. You can connect to me through Linkedin, where I still remain active and will be posting. Please see the Contact tab for details.

The blog will be archived but still available as a webpage, so readers have access to previous articles. Some of them were read many thousands of times, so I do not want to take the precious resources from anybody who searches for the biotechnology and leadership topics.

Thank you again!

Change management is notoriously difficult. One of the reasons may be because the organizations are making the same errors all over again and they do not learn from good or bad experiences.

‘Enrepretonourship,’ seems to be one of the most overused terms in today’s business. If you own lemonade stand or similar enterprise, please stop calling yourself an entrepreneur. If you work for a corporation, bad news, you are not an entrepreneur either. If you wish to learn more about entrepreneurship, please continue to read.

We did it!


After several months of immensely intensive work, at least hundred of business cases and a couple of thousands of pages read, we finally graduated from Harvard Business School’s 24th session of General Management Program on 26th of April. The graduation ceremony took place in a famous Harvard Club of Boston. Both the program and a graduation event were fantastic experiences. In past months, we received a broader, strategic lense and the world will never look the same to any of us. Each of us made 106 new friends. My living group was the most open, friendly and generous group of people I have ever met. All of us will need to have some more time to reflect on what we gained and to approach our next goal: changing the world. This is what Harvard Business School is standing for.
