March 10: Silicon Valley design innovator speaks on “Designing Your Life”

After years as a successful tech executive at Apple and Electronic Arts, Dave Evans came to realize that his real mission in life was to help others find theirs.  Now, he teaches Life Design at Stanford University and is the co-author of Designing Your Life.  Evans’ lectures are transformative for both college students and executives, inspiring them to view life not as a problem that needs to be solved, but as a creative adventure.

For those interested in learning more about life design from one of the country’s leading experts, clear your calendar. Evans will address Metropolitan State students, faculty and staff at 8:30 a.m., Friday, March 10, in the Founders Hall Auditorium, Saint Paul Campus, 700 East 7th St, St. Paul.

Evans will speak about ideas he and co-author Bill Burnett cover in their book Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, and Joyful Life. The event is sponsored by the Career Center at Metropolitan State.
