Here’s to Listening Louder in 2015

Antonio Vivaldi believed in listening. His baroque compositions connected listeners through the poetic power of their beautifully evocative harmonies.

Over the years, our namesake has inspired us in many ways. So it’s only fitting that in our office we work to the beat of music (and that our New York team’s holiday party ended in karaoke duets!). Notes drifting across our desks connect us to one another and keep our afternoons moving, fueled by debates over our eclectic musical tastes.

On a recent afternoon, we reflected on the many ways in which music has been shared and enjoyed since Antonio Vivaldi gathered his fans around a harpsichord. Are cassette tapes going to be retro-cool anytime soon? Maybe, maybe not – but we’re reminded that the only breakthroughs that truly matter are the ones that bring us closer together. How aligned with our thinking and our work!  Truly, innovations are only worth the value that they create in our busy daily lives.

To celebrate the power of music, we put together a collection of share-worthy office tunes representing what matters most to us: connections, new beginnings, community and fresh perspectives.

Join the fun on Spotify for some holiday cheer and year-round inspiration. You’ll find a bunch of beautiful voices, some groovy lite rock tunes and several new pop anthems—so listen up. Add your favorite tunes directly on Spotify or send us a request (tweet us @VivaldiPartners).

Share the soundtrack. And together, we’ll #listenlouder.

THE BEAUTY OF FAILURE

FAIL!

”If you try a lot of things, one might work“ – Tom Peters.

Business success and innovation can only be discovered when we’re open to failure. We, therefore, need to learn how to fail; we need to create organizations and an environment that accepts failure as an invaluable learning tool.

KEEPING UP WITH WHAT’S GOING DOWN IN THE WORLD OF BUSINESS AND BRANDS: DECEMBER 5

This week, retail giants are harnessing technology to address their customers’ biggest pain points, reinventing themselves in the process. Starbucks ditches cash registers (too bad we’ll lose the feed of misspelled names), Nordstrom fitting rooms are morphing into walk-in digital personal shopping engines, and in the wake of Apple Pay and mobile innovations, big banks are reimagining themselves as tech incubators.
