When they dispersed, I got his attention and asked if he wanted to take some questions on Twitter. "What's Twitter?" he asked. Fair question. When I explained it to him briefly (and what I had been doing on Twitter recently), he was all for it.
[I've said before and I'll say it again: Alan Mulally is a down-to-earth, affable and smart guy who's interested in new technology and passionate about Ford. I'm proud to be working for him.]
Here's a sampling of questions & answers from the exchange. Mind you, I was thumbing away on my Blackberry as Alan spoke.
ScottMonty Any questions for Alan Mulally?
ScottMonty Alan just zipped away for some TV interviews. I'll see if I can grab him again. Thanks for the questions.
ScottMonty That closes this Q&A session with Ford CEO Alan Mulally. We may try this again some time.
Not bad for a first-timer. He was pretty succinct, too. What do you think? Is this an interesting way to connect directly to a Fortune 100 CEO?
