This Thursday, NHS continued with their leadership week festivities by hosting William Wang, the CEO of VIZIO.
William Wang was born in Taiwan and moved to Orange County when he was 12 years old. The went to USC for undergraduate school and became an electrical engineer. He started a computer monitor company and it really took off.
He proceeded to talk about how he ran that company into the toilet. This story was very fitting for leadership week because he accredited his failure to a lack of leadership on his part. He wanted to do everything himself, and didn’t delegate.
He then explained how that experience motivated him to start VIZIO. He learned how to lead instead of micromanaging. He also learned how to use his opportunities to his advantage; he cited how he can appeal to companies that don’t like his competitors.
Those in the audience on Thursday gained some great knowledge on leadership.
Junior and Secretary of NHS, Jasper Ying said, “Students who attended gained valuable insight on effective leadership, management, and the right mindset for creating and sustaining successful businesses.  A big thank you to Mr. Wang for being able to speak to us.”
Overall, the leadership banquet was a success and those that attended gained some valuable insight on real world leadership.
