Access to Innovators

When students meet with accomplished leaders, something beautiful happens – they discover the art of the possible. No longer is Steve Wozniak the super-human that created the personal computer. Rather, as a member of our School of Communication board of advisors, Woz is an advocate for the success of our students, a real person with real words of advice and encouragement. The impact on students is profound. The simple lesson learned: “I can do it.”
Steve Wozniak gave me his business card. Yes, he gave a speech to my class – but he gave ME business advice. That is VIP access!
