Eric Schmidt: Whatever You
Google has uploaded its video of outgoing CEO Eric Schmidt speaking at the DLD conference in Muich this week.
Schmidt has of course been in the news a lot over the last week. Last week he announced that he’d be stepping down (and into the role of Executive Chairman), and since then, we’ve seen rumors about him wanting to leave the company, rumors that he wanted to start a talk show, and a new video from Consumer Watchdog calling for him to "go to Washington".
At DLD, he announced that Google would be adding 1,000 employees in Europe (Google also announced that this year would be its biggest hiring year ever).
Schmidt says his NEXT DECADE at Google will be a good one, and during he company’s earnings call, co-founder Sergey Brin said he looks forward to working with Schmidt (as well as co-founder Larry Page) for "many more decades." If Schmidt has any plans of leaving the company anytime soon, nobody is tipping their hand.
Schmidt recently said that Google’s strategy for 2011 is all about mobile. In the above video, he says, “Whatever you’re doing, do mobile first.”
