Thirst for knowledge
These words sat on screen as LRMR CEO Maverick Carter opened his keynote presentation for the Tau Boule Professional Development Series. For the group of professionals, his advice was simple: have an insatiable thirst for knowledge; keep the main thing the main thing; and sever ties with unhealthy relationships.
His own thirst for knowledge was developed at a young age by his grandmother. “The first thing I’d tell my friends when they would come over is ‘Be ready ‘cause Granny is going to hit you with 21-questions.’” Maverick continued his presentation with stories from his experiences as a CEO, drawing on lessons learned from Pat Riley and Jimmy Iovine.
