Join the HBS Club of Toronto in conversation with Dr. Mathew Knowles, music industry executive, entrepreneur, educator and former producer of Destiny’s Child – Beyoncé and Solange.

A business, motivational, and inspirational discussion all rolled into one, this conversation with Dr. Mathew Knowles will share insights from his life and career together with characteristics that are common among successful people from all walks of life.

Throughout his long career, Dr. Knowles has encountered individuals who have motivated, inspired, and contributed to his success. His goal is to share illustrative, true-life experiences of the ten traits commonly shared by successful people, including: passion, vision, work ethic, team-building, planning, talk-to-do ratio, learning from failure, giving back, risk-taking, and thinking outside the box.

As a self-made entrepreneurial success story who came from a small town and became the top salesperson at Xerox Medical Systems, sold successful businesses he created, and became one of the world’s top entertainment executives in the music industry, Dr. Mathew Knowles embodies all of these traits. We will explore and learn from his journey to success.
