Reggie Fils-Aimé is set to share his leadership wisdom with students at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. The ex-Nintendo of America president has joined the university's Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management as its first Leader in Residence.

As part of the school's Leadership Program, Reggie will visit the campus once each semester to "meet one-on-one with students, lead small group discussions, and facilitate a larger workshop", giving back to the university from which he graduated in 1983. The first of these events is scheduled in for 21st October.

The lecture is open to the public, so if you just so happen to be in the area and are interested in the topic, make sure to head on over. Attendees will be able to meet and listen to Reggie's lecture and even enjoy light refreshments afterwards. Nice.

We can already imagine what'll happen if students show up late.


It's been just under five months since Reggie stepped down as Nintendo of America president; we can remember it like it was yesterday, but it somehow feels like such a long time ago.
