A 2005 winner of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award.
It is a good thing I won this a few years ago; I no longer qualify.
My first book has a five star rating at Amazon.com, and was translated into Russian and Korean. I've spoken many times on the business lessons in this book -- all learned at the cost of much time and trouble!
Bob skipped his senior year of high school to attend Drexel University, then turned an internship into a full-time job at Microsoft at age 19. Bob did, however, graduate from eighth grade.
"The Best Presentation at TOC: My favorite presentation of the conference was from Bob Pritchett of Logos Bible Software, in a session titled, Network Effects Support Premium Pricing. I remember attending his presentation four years ago at the first TOC in San Jose, so I knew I didn't want to miss his presentation this time. They're doing amazing stuff at Logos." -- http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mark-coker/exploring-the-future-of-b_b_478846.html
"Fire Someone Today" is what I learned building my own company. It's one of several lessons, include "Winning Takes 51%" and "Nobody Loves Your Baby Like You Do." These topics are the practical wisdom from long lunches with other entrepreneurs and from making lots of mistakes of my own. My talk is about making the right decisions in good times and bad and it is full of practical examples from real businesses. My presentations are strong on "things you can do tomorrow morning."
