The Isenberg School of Management proudly presents a new speaker series, Driven: A Conversation with ... . Several times each year, Driven will bring seminal business thought leaders to the UMass Club on One Beacon Street to share insights with Boston’s business community. Driven will draw its speakers from across the business spectrum. Our principal selection criterion: speakers will have excelled as change agents whose ideas are reshaping the landscape of business thought and practice.
As New England’s top-rated public business school, Isenberg is an increasingly valued resource for Boston’s business community. In that role, Driven aspires to catalyze the exchange of innovative ideas and business networking.
Our next speaker will be announced soon for Fall 2017.
For its inaugural event, Isenberg presented Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computer and chief scientist at Primary Data. A Silicon Valley icon for more than thirty years, Wozniak co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs in 1976, shaping the computer industry with his design of Apple I and II and influencing the popular Macintosh. In recent years, he has directed his passion for mathematics and electronics toward improving computer capabilities in schools and hands-on learning and creativity among students.
