Description: Steve Jobs was fond of it. And apparently so too is John O’Donnell, the CEO of Allstate Insurance in Canada. Mr. ODonnell and his staff can often be found in a walking meeting, roaming the paths around  Allstate’s Markham head office. There are benefits to thinking outside the box of the office walls as well as the health benefits of fresh air and exercise.
