Joel Podolny ’82, Apple’s Senior Vice President for Human Resources and Dean of Apple University, will spend this Friday visiting with students, faculty and administrators at St. X. At noon he will speak in the Theater to students, faculty, staff and interested parents on “When Serendipity Happens, How Do You Know? Taking Advantage of Life’s Happy Accidents (and Avoiding Paths That Can Lead You Astray)”.
The Los Angeles Times wrote of Mr. Podolny: “To survive its late founder, Apple and Steve Jobs planned a training program in which company executives will be taught to think like him, in a forum to ‘impart that DNA to future generations’. Key to this effort is Joel Podolny, former Yale Business School Dean.”
