“The Greatest Athlete Ever” – Nike
I met Serena Williams at a VIP event at this year’s Magento Imagine conference and jokingly told her “I’m often called the Serena Williams of eCommerce.” She laughed.
Note to Magento:
The next time you interview someone as accomplished as Serena, don’t lob redundant softball questions about everything everyone already knows. She’s fashion industry disruptor, launching a new ecommerce site later this year and has built the teams to do execute. It would have been a lot more interesting to hear her perspectives on those instead of standard mechanical questions about playing tennis with Venus, her father’s influence and who her endorsers are. This interview made me squirm in my seat at times.
