Jack Ma of Alibaba Delivers Commencement Address at the 2014 Tsinghua SEM Commencement


On June 29, 2014, Tsinghua SEM held the 2014 Commencement in the Gymnasium of Tsinghua University.  More than 2,000 graduates, their families and friends, and the faculty and staff of the School participated in the Commencement.  Mr. Jack Ma, Chairman of Alibaba Group and a member of the School’s Advisory Board, delivered the Commencement Address.
The 2014 Tsinghua SEM Commencement
In his opening remarks, Dean QIAN Yingyi said that this year marked the School’s 30th anniversary.  Over the past months, the School organized a series of activities to celebrate the milestone.  Just before the Commencement, the School gave every SEM graduate a picture album titled The Magnificent 30 Years as a graduation gift.
Six graduate representatives delivered valedictory addresses at the Commencement.  They are MA Yuan from the undergraduate program, XIA Bingqing from the second- degree undergraduate program, FENG Ming from the PhD program, YIN Hang from the Master’s program, DONG Ding from the MBA program, and KONG Falong from the EMBA program.  They shared their stories of how the School had changed their lives as well as their visions for the future after graduation.
Mr. Jack Ma, Chairman of Alibaba Group, which is eyeing a public listing on the New York Stock Exchange soon, told his personal stories and gave his advice to the SEM graduates in his Commencement Address.

Mr. Ma looked back on his student days, saying that even though he did not do well on the College Entrance Exam, he had never given up his dreams.  He urged the SEM graduates to make constant efforts in discovering and learning from others’ strengths, grabbing opportunities in the fast-changing society, and getting prepared for possible setbacks ahead.  Mr. Ma gave the advice to the graduates on the three principles that he had upheld over the past three decades: being idealism, taking responsibilities, and having positive energy from optimism.

The Huffington Post reported extracts from Ma's speech like this

At Tsinghua (one of China's top three universities), Ma peppered his speech with anecdotes that raised eyebrows in the audience and among investors: He claimed that he has never bought anything on Taobao, his shopping site that has come to define Chinese e-commerce, and that he has never used Alipay, the company's third-party payment system that many see as central to its future growth.

"To this day I've still never bought anything on Taobao and I've never once used Alipay because I don't know how to use it," he said. "But I've always got my ears perked up, listening so I can learn what others think about Alipay."

Ma couched the claim as a way to maintain objectivity, a means of keeping his distance from products so he can evaluate them without emotion.

"If I were a frequent user of my products, I would always be out to defend them," he said. "But as someone who doesn't use them I always remain worried about them. That keeps me up at night, and only when I'm up worrying at night can the rest of the company truly enjoy a good night's sleep."

However, as the Financial Times reports, Ma said in a 2010 speech that he and six co-founders of Taobao made some of the first-ever purchases on the site in order to help create the sense of an active marketplace.

"Of course, there were no buyers so we each bought our own [things]," Ma said at the time. "Later, when there were actual people putting up actual items for sale, we would scramble to buy them."

Some of Alibaba's most innovative forays have been into the world of micro-finance and online banking. In 2011 it began offering micro-loans to online vendors who are shut out of a banking system geared toward large state-owned enterprises. More recently, Alipay has faced backlash from the state, with four of its banks putting monthly limits on the amount of money people can spend on their smartphones through the service.

In his speech, Ma alluded to the conflict and said he is willing to pay the price for shaking up Chinese finance.

"All the way back in 2004 when we decided to create Alipay and later Alifinance [Alibaba's micro-finance arm], I already knew there would come a day when we'd have these kinds of troubles," he said. "At the time I was torn about it. But when I attended the Davos forum I had a chance to listen to all these politicians and entrepreneurs debate what 'service' means. Several people said that if you have something that you truly believe is good and can help push society forward, then you just have to bravely go out and serve that cause."

Ma emphasized that optimism, grit and luck would all be crucial if one of Tsinghua's graduates hopes to create the next Alibaba.

"I'm a person who has made countless mistakes. Over the past 15 years Alibaba has run up against over 100 problems that could have destroyed the whole company, but each time we got over them," he said. "So how did we do it? We persisted in our optimism, knowing that in this world if you don't see something through, someone else will. I believed that Alibaba and Taobao would make it through."

"Afterwards," he continued, "I created a motto for myself, for other young people and for my co-workers: 'Today is brutal, tomorrow is cruel, and the day after tomorrow is beautiful. But most people will die tomorrow night.'"

circa 1997 as this hbr paper by Browne then chairman of BP shows there was a lot of excitement that some of britian's ceos might lead knowledge-age organisations

personally based mainly in london to 2005, i spent quite a lot of time checking middle levels of bp but didnt find much fitting with our EIU work of how to brand a learning organisation published 1995- Brand Chartering Chris Macrae; later while working for WPP< BP was a big client

as can be seen by risks BP exposed usa coastline to, BP isnt a lead company worth modelling for general goodwill purposes- as a european i would have liked to hope that we could run less risky companies than us counterparts but there is no eveidnce to support that as far as I am aware

I assume that browne has leading contacts all round the world of oil and is valued by Tsinghua in that regard-happy to be corrected if there are other reasons why millennials would wish to follow browne's instructions
