Alibaba founder Jack Ma presents bold ideas about globalization, leadership, education and the future – alongside some overbroad generalizations about gender and age. 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.

- Why globalization remains unstoppable, despite its doubters; and
- How to thrive as a professional and as a leader.
