Richard St. John's (AOCA, Industrial Design, 1969) TED Talks on success have over 15-million views on the web, and his book The 8 Traits Successful People Have In Common is a bestseller.

For 15 years he researched why people succeed, and did face-to-face interviews with Bill Gates, the Google founders, Jane Goodall, Steven Spielberg, Richard Branson, Martha Stewart, Frank Gehry, six Nobel Prize winners, and 1,000 other successful people. He discovered what leads to success in any career—from art, architecture, and design, to business, science, and sports—and he’s excited to share it with us.

So please join Richard for a fast, factual, funny and inspiring ride along the road to success.
