President and CEO of Ebay John Donahoe gives lecture

This is hilarious! Some highlights...

President and CEO of Ebay John Donahoe gives lecture

John Donahoe, president and CEO of Ebay since 2008, talked with students about the critical reception he received when he first joined Ebay and how it taught him the importance of staying true to personal values and taking risks. The talk was part of the VIP Speaker Series hosted by the Undergraduate Business Council....

... Donahoe said Ebay had stopped innovating, so he started a multi-year process to change how the company functioned. Sellers were angry about changes that Donahoe instituted, including decreasing some fees but increasing the percentage that Ebay gets from the final price. Donahoe said he hit a low point when he looked up what Ebay sellers had posted about him on a YouTube video. 

"They had literally taken clips from the movie 'Schindler's List,'" Donahoe said. "They took clips of the German guards shooting at Jewish prisoners, and they put my name on the German guards, and they posted Ebay sellers on the Jewish prisoners' chests." ...




For the record.

There were never any videos (that we saw) where they put Donahoe's name on the German guards, nor 'ebay sellers' on the prisoners' chests. The movie clips were not edited, or enhanced with any additional overlain graphics etc.

We retain the original source files from the original video produced and posted by ebayredux, Titled John Donahoe New eBay CEO CNN Interview May 2008, which were incorporated into this parody/sarcasumentary video:





This is many times over now that Donahoe has brought up the videos. Yet he is undoubtedly the one perpetuating the lampoonotype/caricature, with all the purges etc. That sad fact becomes more obvious each time he mentions it.

It's also very telling that the 3 Year Turnaround is now a "multi-year process", somewhere around 6 full years+ or near 7 years later.
