This event has already passed Location: Horchow Auditorium

At some point in life, many people find themselves asking “What do I want to be when I grow up?” Dave Evans, a former successful tech exec at Apple and Electronic Arts, realized that his real mission in life was to help people find their purpose and passion. Today he teaches Life Design at Stanford University and is the co-author of the #1 New York Times bestselling book Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life

In Designing Your Life, Evans and co-author Bill Burnett, Executive Director of Stanford’s Design School, inspire readers to view life not as a problem that needs to be solved, but as a creative adventure. The book emphasizes that it’s never too late to design a life you love through innovation and creative problem-solving, and that the same principles used to create amazing technology and products can also be used to design and build a life filled with purpose and joy that is constantly creative and productive. Whether you are making a career or a life change, Evans will jumpstart your creative journey to fulfillment. 

“An empowering book based on their popular class of the same name at Stanford University. . . . Perhaps the book’s most important lesson is that the only failure is settling for a life that makes one unhappy. With useful fact-finding exercises, an empathetic tone, and sensible advice, this book will easily earn a place among career-finding classics.”Publishers Weekly
