Scott Cochran, President of Spartanburg Methodist College Addressed the Club on June 11

What it takes to be successful in the hyper-fast, ever-changing world we live in.
There are more books on success, leadership and culture than you can read in a lifetime. There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all blueprint for success. But there are behaviors and attitudes, combined with some luck and a willingness to take risks, that successful people exhibit. Those people create a culture that makes winning inevitable. You need be that kind of person and surround yourself with those kind of people.
