Marriott CEO Arne Sorenson offers advice on how to succeed in business

Arne Sorenson

When Marriott International CEO Arne Sorenson isn't delivering earnings reports or grappling over control of one big hotel company—he's a regular guy, who likes to take time out from his hectic schedule and share some of his accumulated knowledge with tomorrow's business leaders.

In this case, Sorenson, who by the way knows how to rock a guayabera, spent some time recently, a hop, skip and a jump away from Marriott's headquarters, at the University of Maryland, speaking to MBA students on ways to succeed.

I won't give away what he said—you will see it in the video—but it is refreshing to see a successful CEO offer common-sense tips that you don't learn from a text book. Enjoy Arne!
