Network World for Blazent

September 14, 2015

Gary Oliver, CEO at data intelligence company Blazent, finds an escape from the office can be therapeutic and enlightening. “As most CEOs would attest, turning off the day job is very difficult, even if you have many interests outside of work. You don’t have to be sitting in the office to be thinking about strategy, or the business model, or that new market you are looking to expand to. It is there in the back of your mind all the time.”

“Getting outdoors is what I do to recharge my batteries and clear my mind, and my favorite activities are those that require complete concentration,” Oliver says. Fly fishing, skiing, surfing, and photography are a few of his pastimes. “What all of these activities have in common is they require total concentration and physical effort, which is so therapeutic. Sometimes breakthrough ideas also come right after…like on the ski lift back to the top of the hill or sitting by a roaring fire after a day on the river.”
