Description

The Ferguson Library will host an online webinar - a screening of the documentary, "The Innovators: Pitney Bowes at 100," on Monday, May 11 at 5:30 p.m. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with producers Bob Doran, and John O’Neill, and Director of Photography Scott Sniffin. Moderated by Tony Pavia. Registration is required.

Narrated by Paula Zahn, “The Innovators: Pitney Bowes at 100,” looks at the breakthroughs from Stamford-based Pitney Bowes’ history. It also looks at their failures along the way and how they survived.

The documentary includes interviews with current and former Pitney Bowes CEOs, and interviews with UConn School of Business Interim Dean David Souder, business author Maury Klein, Peter Liebhold from the Smithsonian, and Elliot Gruber from the U.S. Postal Museum in Washington, D.C. These experts put Pitney Bowes’ values-driven culture of innovation into perspective and help viewers understand if thought leader Jim Collins was correct when he singled the organization out in his 2001 book Good to Great.
