yourBusinessChannel.com and their talented team started a great project: compiling insights from international experts on "who will be successful in 2010?" I was asked to contribute my thoughts to the videocast they put together. What I'm more interested in is who do you think will be successful in business in 2010? Why? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
What follows are 3 excerpts from a total of six commentaries on yBC's videocast and PDF. Both of these are available further down the page.
Noel Quinn, UK Head of Commercial Banking HSBC
"History tells us more businesses will fail in recovery than they do in a downturn.
Entrepreneurs are looking for more than money; their new business models depend on access to networks, knowledge and people. They have found flexible ways of working and will not return to more rigid, arguably more expensive, forms of business in the future. They are using technology and advisers to build social, network and human capital as well as finance."

"The last decade has been one of massive change. The traditional way of doing business no longer works. Those entrepreneurs who take and Open Random and Supportive (ORS) approach will win. In 2010 ORS entrepreneurs will make more connections, move faster, and achieve more wins."
