Speaker: Ken Segall, Speaker, Blogger, and Author of the book: "Insanely Simple: The Obsession That Drives Apple's Success"
Thursday, May 16, 2019, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM - Fetzer Center

As Steve Jobs’s ad man for more than 12 years, Ken played a part in Apple’s amazing rise from the ashes. In the process, he found himself transformed as well, learning from one of the world’s most successful—and least conventional— leaders. Jobs was exactly as advertised, difficult and often brutal, but it’s impossible to argue with his success. In this talk, Ken takes a closer look at Steve’s management style, his uncompromising beliefs and his willingness to take risks. The takeaway is that anyone can adopt the principles that helped Steve create lust-worthy products, eliminate complexity, motivate employees and outthink the competition. You don’t need a Jobs-like personality to achieve Jobs-like success.
