AACE Seattle Section April 12th, 2018 Meeting

PRESENTATION: The Real Leadership Lessons of Steve Jobs!

We know that effective leadership is critical to the success of an organization, but while we all agree in principal that leadership is key, so many organizations (and bosses) are missing the mark. We struggle with a lack of focus. We throw out lots of great ideas but fail to execute well. We make great products, but they dont get the traction we hoped for. To be successful, we must have great companies, filled with great people.

When asked what his most important creation was, Steve Jobs didnt cite the iPhone, or the Mac, or any other product. He named Apple itself. Making an enduring company, he said, was both harder and more important than making an excellent product.

At our April Meeting we will have a presentation from Tim Riley, who is a professional colleague of our Section Secretary, Mike Morrison.  This will be an interactive presentation with some discussion at the tables and sharing with your table mates.  You may be surprised at some of the lessons learned and taught by Steve Jobs.

PRESENTER: Tim Riley, CEO Masters Forum
Tim Riley is chair of the Seattle CEO Masters Forum, a think-tank for Washingtons C-level leaders. In addition, Tim is Program Director for the Leadership Acceleration Program LEAP, a Fortune 100 level leadership development program. Tim has been active at the C-level for over 20 years and has robust subject matter expertise in the following areas: Strategic planning and execution, leadership coaching, and development, competitive strategy, digital and traditional marketing, sales force design, negotiation, employee engagement, business case analysis, and financial modeling. Tim is active on several profit and not-for-profit boards and has received numerous national and regional awards for business performance including two recognitions on the Inc 500 listing.
