He mentioned that he had a 2.9 at Duke and rose up to the partner ranks in banking. Mind blown....Duke Graduation 2017

You're probably right, but you're missing the point. He mentioned his 2.9 GPA as a hook- a way to get students to listen instead of dozing off. It's something all great speakers do.

Dang, thats true. I really like his humility you know. I bookmarked that speech not because hes in banking and all but its just as real as it gets as if you just had lunch with the guy. Something to think about..

It's a good speech not only because the advice is good, but because the advice is very applicable to his audience. Too often, these commencement speakers give advice that might be great, but is not easily accessible or directly applicable to graduates.

Agreed, and to be quite honest you dont see that nowadays. Straight forward advice that contains real experiences. You feel like you learn something after it.
