Learnings from my discussion with Eric S. Yuan, CEO and founder of Zoom      By: JP Marcos, MBA 2001

I was extremely fortunate to animate a fireside chat with Eric S. Yuan recently, in front of an audience of Harvard Business School and Harvard University Alumni, as part of the CEO series of the HBSANC and Harvard Club SF.  What a fantastic evening that was: Eric is really charismatic, fun and an incredible and original thought leader.  It was a very entertaining evening for everyone, packed with business learnings and life lessons.  The story behind Zoom is fascinating and I personally very much enjoyed conversing and hearing firsthand the advice from a great entrepreneur, who happens to also be a very humble person. In this post, I wanted to share just a few learnings from the 90mn discussion with Eric, illustrated by his actual answers. I hope that you will like my selection and will be encouraged to attend the next CEO series event.

On November 9, 2017, over 350 Harvard Business School Alumni and supporters convened in San Francisco to celebrate the accomplishments of Sal Khan (MBA 2003), Founder and CEO of Khan Academy.

The Harvard Business School Association of Northern California (HBSA/NC) honored Sal as the 48th Business Leader of the Year, at its annual gala.
