Designing Your Life Author and Stanford University Adjunct Professor Dave Evans will show us how design thinking can help us create a life that is both meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of who or where we are, what we do or have done for a living, or how young or old we are. The same design thinking responsible for amazing technology, products, and spaces can be used to design and build your career and your life, a life of fulfillment and joy, constantly creative and productive, one that always holds the possibility of surprise.

About Dave Evans


Starting at Stanford with dreams of following Jacques Cousteau as a marine biologist, Dave realized (a bit late) that he was lousy at it and shifted to mechanical engineering with an eye on the energy problem. After four years in alternative energy, it was clear that this idea's time hadn't come yet. So while en route to biomedical engineering, Dave accepted an invitation to work for Apple, where he led product marketing for the mouse team and introduced laser printing to the masses. When Dave's boss at Apple left to start Electronic Arts, Dave joined as the company's first VP of Talent, dedicated to making "software worthy of the minds that use it." Having participated in forming the corporate cultures at Apple and EA, Dave decided his best work was in helping organizations build creative environments where people could do great work and love doing it. So he went out on his own; working with start-up teams, corporate executives, non-profit leaders, and countless young adults. They were all asking the same question: "What should I do with my life?" Helping people get traction on that question finally took Dave to Cal and Stanford and continues to be his life's work.

Lunch Presentation: A Conversation with Scot Sellers & Doug Bibby

Scot Sellers, retired CEO of Archstone, board member and author


Scot Sellers retired as the CEO of Archstone, a Standard and Poor’s 500 company, in February 2013, after an executive career spanning over 20 years there, most of them as the company’s Chairman and CEO. During his twelve years leading Archstone as a public company, Archstone delivered a total shareholder return of over 720 percent and grew dramatically to become one of the largest publicly traded real estate companies in America. In addition to his career at Archstone, he has been a valued board member for a number of companies. He currently serves on the boards of The Howard Hughes Corporation, The Irvine Company and Inspirato LLC, and serves as an advisor to the board of Monogram Residential. Scot has been fascinated by human interaction since his childhood and has made this one of the cornerstones of his management style and approach to life. This down-to-earth approach to fulfillment and satisfaction in life is the emphasis of his first book, Regret-Free Living.
