Motivational College and University Guest Lecturer …
Bobby did not go to college. His presentations at institutions of higher learning are about the knowledge one does not get in college. Professor of Advertising, John Hall, at Southern Methodist University, compares Bobby Phillips to the fictional MadMen TV characters who came out of nowhere to become America’s most creative innovators. Bobby is one of the very few, if not the only still active advertising pioneer from the early sixties. This is the era historians refer to as the “Creative Revolution”, where status quo rules were broken.
Professor Hall said, “Bobby Phillips is a living example of Mark Twain’s famous quote, ‘Don’t let schooling interfere with your education’ and he is now our most popular guest lecturer”. Another university professor said, “While all the other kids were busy trying to figure out which crayons to use, Bobby Phillips was already a ‘Roads’ scholar at Street-Smart University!”
It’s not where you start … It’s where you finish!
