Kip Tindell, chairman and chief executive officer of the Container Store, was one of two commencement speakers at Babson College on Saturday, May 18 (the other being Patrick Awuah Jr., the founder and president of Ashesi University College in Ghana).

Tindell told MBAs that “everything you do and everything you don’t do impacts the people around you, your business, your family, your community far, far more than you realize.” He compared the impact to a boat’s wake: “All of our wakes are much, much bigger than we can imagine.”
