10 lessons Steve Jobs taught Guy Kawasaki
In Melbourne on 9 and 10 April Apple’s former chief evangelist Guy Kawasaki will outline the 10 lessons Steve Jobs taught Guy Kawasaki.
Guy will outline these lessons at the two day Future of Work Conference hosted by the Centre for Workplace Leadership.
Guy Kawasaki marketed the very first Macintosh back in 1984 with Steve Jobs, breaking into a market dominated by IBM. He worked with Steve Jobs twice from 1983-87 and again from 1995-1997 and his lessons will be of keen interest to those looking to start their own business, enhance work performances or motivate staff.
‘When I saw what a Macintosh could do, the clouds parted and the angels started singing’ said Kawaskai in a recent interview and for four years he evangelized Macintosh to software and hardware developers and led the charge against world-wide domination by IBM. He would return to Apple in 1995 to ‘rejuvenate the Apple cult’ but during his time outside the technology behemoth he himself became a tech superstar.
Guy will draw on his extensive experiences as a corporate advisor, venture capitalist, author, speaker to present a global view of the changes and challenges that have informed our understanding of people, place and technology.
Joining Kawasaki at the Future of Work Conference will be another leading international figure. British organisational thinker, founder of the Hot Spots movement and named as one of the top 15 business thinkers in the world by the Times/Harvard Business Review ‘Business Thinkers 50’ ensures Professor Lynda Gratton will give powerful insights on the Future of Work at the conference.
‘This conference will enable employees, managers, business leaders and business owners to access cutting edge technology, research and thinking on the workplace’ outlined Centre for Workplace Leadership Director Professor Peter Gahan.
The Future of Work; People, Place, Technology will take place at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre on the 9th and 10th April. For more information and to register click here.
