I just wanted to point out that Jeff Immelt spoke at the Thayer School Investiture ceremony 2 years ago. I found the speech was significantly more relevant to a new graduate than the Dartmouth commencement speaker that year (the RPI president whose name I can’t even remember).

I think its important to note that General Electric is an extraordinarily diverse company requiring genuine leadership at the helm. I’d argue that the difficulty of the job ranks with the UN Secretary General.

That speech is still available online.

My feeling: Much better Immelt than some communist academic, Demond Tutu, or Maya Angelou.
