This week’s guest is Jeff Immelt, former CEO of General Electric and current venture partner at New Enterprise Associates. Jeff will be speaking at the University of Montana on September 27th as part of the Baucus Center’s Stockman Bank Speaker Series. He was kind enough to join Justin for a conversation in advance of his visit. Justin and Jeff speak about shocks and crises and a course at Stanford Jeff teaches called Systems Leadership. As a teacher, Jeff reflects on the importance of mental health in student populations and how he’s noticed students today are more place restrictive when they look at their careers. Justin asks Jeff his thoughts on the popular perception that people just don’t want to work anymore, and what he advises young people when they say they want to make a difference. Tune into Jeff’s talk with Max Baucus at the University of Montana on Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at umt.edu/law.
