IT Visionaries

Oct 22, 2019

Craig Walker was our guest on the first-ever episode of IT Visionaries. We’re so excited to welcome him back for a second interview in which he dives into everything from his origin story to what it means to be a leader. And he should know. Craig is the VP and CIO of Shell Downstream at Shell International Petroleum Company, and he has spent the majority of his career with the company. His journey in tech has taken him all over the world and he’s been forced to learn on the fly and make mistakes. But those mistakes have been the most important learning experiences of his life, and now he’s encouraging his employees to explore and fail and learn in similar ways. Craig shares all of that and more on this episode. We hope you enjoy his insights.  


Key Takeaways:


  • Progressing your career with one company
  • Lessons learned from unique experiences and failure
  • How to inspire innovation and create an exceptional employee experience
  • The future of data and how to leverage it in new ways
