My colleague, Bill O'Connor, is one of our corporate strategists. Bill crafts papers, speeches, visuals, and videos to support the CEO, CTO, and other members of Exec Staff in sharing Autodesk's thoughts on technology and innovation. I have previously blogged about Bill's work with a group of students in relation to Bill Clinton's Global Initiative.
Pulse is an SMS based, food savings program aimed at allowing the disadvantaged who are living on small, and irregular incomes a more consistent access to nutritious, and dignified food. Recently there was a follow up story:
In a pilot program, 25 Indian women increased their families’ food budgets by 12% — enough to pay for an average of 14 more meals per month. Way to go Bill. I know the Pulse team appreciates the help.
