Tim Cook has two dates he can’t miss in the next few months. They don’t involve presentations of new Apple products and services but two universities. Cook will attend to give the graduation speech at Tulane University and Stanford University in May and June, respectively.
In this type of discourse, universities aspire to get relevant people from the public scene and who align themselves with the values of their institutions. It is not the first time that Tim Cook gives a speech of this kind, nor has he been the only CEO to do so (perhaps the most famous speech is that of Steve Jobs).
Here is the announcement of the University of Tulane in New Orleans , where the name of the person who will give the speech is revealed. It is recorded with Clips, Apple’s video recording and editing app for social networks. The president of Tulane stated the following:
In Apple “You Have the Power to Solve the World’s Problems”: Tim Cook gives his graduation speech at Duke
As for Stanford, a university that is located very close to Cupertino in California , its president has also given a few hints about his choice for the graduation speech:
In the end, these universities hope to give their students one last push at a critical time in their lives: when they begin their professional careers as graduates. Having the CEO of one of the most important companies in the world come to your university to give the graduation speech is a great way to do it .
