Quotes & Awards

  • “I’ve never done anything solo. Except take tests. But with the exception of that, I would always seek someone out.” 

    Bill Gates

  • “In a business that is so crazy, to actually know that there is somebody who is really smart, whom you care about, who has you inerests, and who is rowing in the same direction, is something of immense value.” 

    Ron Howard

  • “We’re fire and ice, basically. I mean, I’m a little more conservative, he’s a little more of a risk taker. And that’s where he  changed me. He got me in situations to think outside the box a little bit, and to take more chances.” 

    Joe Torre, former New York Yankees manager, on his partnership with bench coach Don Zimmer

  • “These stories of successful collaborations are told by the somewhat-notorious Disney executive Michael Eisner. His tone is confident, sometimes brash, but it gives life to the stories of some of the biggest partners of our generation.
