MIT: Eric Schmidt

The MIT Leadership Center and the MIT Sloan Office of the Dean hosted Eric Schmidt, Technical Advisor and Board Member to Alphabet, Inc., and former CEO and Chairman of Google, as part of the iLead Speaker Series.

In a packed room, I sat nearly at his feet to ensure I could get a clear view. Schmidt was concise, warm, thorough, and funny; he clarified the importance of treating people well. “Value people,” he said, “and make people feel valued.”
