Moe and Walter Scherr talk about how he was a Depression era kid who survived tuberculosis and six years in a sanatorium to become a leader in the business community; a boardroom millionaire; and a key figure in the early days of the high-tech revolution.
Walter’s Way: The Making of a Remarkable Humanitarian
What a treat it was for me today to share part of my day with one of the more remarkable human beings I’ve ever been around, . At 91 years young, he’s the quintessential entrepreneur who, in the process of making the world a better place, leaves everyone in his presence better off. His character is one of dignity and trust, his example is one I would want my son to emulate, and his moral strength is what superhero movies are built around.
Having dedicated his professional career to building businesses in technology and oil & gas, he now directs his energy to perhaps his most important project - The Center for Discovery. As you’ll pick up in this conversation, there’s no better humanitarian on the planet with as much determination to serve those less fortunate:
Here’s what he’ll share:
- How he evaluates his life - both personally and professionally
How adversity has shaped his character
- Building mental resilience & dealing with his lowest moments
- The time he knew he wanted to run a business
- Why management by walking around ignites the best in others
- The greatest lesson he learned from Mother Teresa
