His topic will be "Success in Globalizing the World." He will be speaking on and giving ideas for post-graduation success in the workplace and what it will take to be successful therein, as well as speaking about the population of a rapidly globalizing world. "We are very excited to hear that President Uchtdorf will be taking the time to speak to the UVU students," said Joseph Watkins, student body president of UVU. "Utah Valley University will hear and learn from a man who has been through the struggles of education and life and came out on top of the professional world." Uchtdorf was selected to speak because of his renowned experience as an airline pilot, as well as a lengthy list of accomplishments. He joined Lufthansa German Airlines as a pilot in 1965 and worked as an airline pilot for 25 years. He has had experience flying multiple types of airplanes and has completed a career with the B747. He has also served in various executive positions, including head of the airline pilot school, director of in-flight services and head of cockpit crews. Although Uchtdorf led a distinguished career, he left everything behind when he was asked to become a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the LDS Church. At the time of his call, he was the senior vice president of flight operations and chief pilot of Lufthansa German Airlines. He was also the chairman of the Flight Operations Committee of the International Air Transport Association. "I personally feel that this is such a great opportunity to have such a well-known figure in the community and in the world speak to the students on this campus," Watkins said.
