Maxim of the Show
A maxim is a short, pithy statement expressing a general truth or rule of conduct. During most CHAOS Tuesday Shows we have a maxim. The show maxim bit started on May 14, 2013 with Show #5 titled Collaborating. The maxim was from Robert Holler, CEO and Founder of VersionOne. Mr. Holler was our guest on the show and started the tradition. Robert’s maxim was “Communicate, colaborate, facilidate, and succeed”. Since show #5 almost every CHAOS Tuesday Show has a maxim. Here is a sample of some of the maxims on Chaos Tuesday.
