Giving a greatly entertaining commencement address at Boston University in May of 2012, Eric Schmidt, Google's Executive Chairman, takes on the modern day and current graduating class in his extraordinary life keynote. As a leader in the online realm and social media market, Schmidt has an ability to connect with these modern day students who are the faces and the minds of the next generation of technology.
Schmidt takes a commencement address and creates a remarkably international discussion that involves students who are texting, Facebooking and Tweeting right there in the audience. One of the key learnings from Schmidt's extraordinary life keynote explains that the path to having a fulfilled life has changed and now requires "innovation and entrepreneurship." Since we are connected in ways that no generation has ever been able to achieve before, Schmidt sees a better future ahead for the youth of today.
