Commencement speech by Vivek Wadhwa: “It’s a beautiful time to be alive and educated”

Vivek Wadhwa speakerCheck out the latest column for the Washington Post by Vivek Wadhwa – a leading speaker on innovation.

It is the commencement speech that he gave at Hult International Business School on Friday, to 2000 students and family members. Vivek talks about the opportunity our children have to build the future that we dreamed about, as we are currently living in an age of unprecedented potential. He also stresses the risks, disruptions, and the need for a higher purpose.

“The most important skill of the future will be the ability to learn and adapt. You need to be resourceful, keep your eyes open for advances coming out of nowhere, and embrace the new opportunities as they emerge. You need to be able to collaborate with others and build relationships. You need to be able to share ideas, inspire, and motivate.”
