Robert Lavigne was fortunate to be introduced to Vinnie Mirchandani back in September of 2010. Vinnie was then touring his new book “The New Polymath” at a local meetup in Toronto, Canada.
It was not until Robert heard Vinnie describe the term to him that he realized, “I am a Polymath“.
Robert Lavigne often use his video interview with Vinnie Mirchandani to kick off his Life@42 Workshop. The Life@42 Workshop focusses on Personal Branding, Social Media Mentoring and Social Business Leadership.
Here is Vinnie Mirchandani’s take on what is “The New Polymath”.
A Polymath—the Greek word for Renaissance Man—is someone who excels in many disciplines. The New Polymath is an enterprise comfortable with multiple technologies and is packaging 3, 5, 10 strands of infotech, cleantech, healthtech, biotech and nanotech to create innovative new products and solutions.
The wide innovation coverage in the book reflects Vinnie Mirchandani’s varied technology experiences and rolodex. He is President of Deal Architect Inc, a technology advisory firm. The firm helps clients take advantage of disruptive trends like cloud computing and business process outsourcing (BPO) before they go mainstream.
