Keeping with tradition of the Davos Meet the Leader series, Ma draws often from his personal experience. He recalls being rejected for a job at KFC and becoming teacher of the year at his university, as well as co-founding Alibaba with many of his students. getAbstract recommends this casual chat with a business magnate.
