Last summer I was lucky enough to hear Jack Welch present a keynote address in Boston. It was an incredible opportunity to learn from a true business legend and try to connect his perspectives to my own experiences. I was awed by his immense presence, his command of the room and his apparent stature (he loomed fairly large for a relatively short person). And at the same time, I was interested to hear him speak so simply and concisely. He was matter of fact and to the point.
