Keith Darley
Director of Customer Experience

'Marc Randolph spoke at many CIOsynergy conferences through North America and he was an outstanding speaker. His thought provoking keynotes have underlined Marc as one of our most demanded keynotes. His new book about Netflix will surely be a must read and we're looking forward to reading it and sharing it with our community of enterprise leaders. We need more inspiring books about how entrepreneurs take a dream and make it reality for our C-suite audiences who are themselves on the edge of inspiring innovation'

Nepal Patel
CEO and Founder
High Point University

'While Marc Randolph is certainly a successful entrepreneur and co-founder of Netflix, his most significant role may be that of mentor. I've seen it first hand on the campus of High Point University where Marc serves as Entrepreneur in Residence. Our students listen intensely to his advice and counsel, and they line up to receive feedback on their entrepreneurial endeavors and in general, their life path. In Nobody Knows Anything, Marc puts to paper a lifetime of learnings, trial and error, and a system to ensure the reader can embrace the type of growth mindset that creates success and significance.'

Dr. Nido R Qubein

'Marc Randolph leverages his decades of experience in Silicon Valley to encourage everyone, anyone and nobody to follow their dreams. Adopting his strategies to reduce time to insight, embrace risk, and simply take action, the reader will start to think like a start-up, develop as a leader and innovate.'

Rebecca Nerad
