To call Gregory Slayton’s life “full” would be an understatement. He spent much of his twenties helping people throughout the developing world: He was a Fulbright Scholar to Asia, ran an orphanage in Manila, spearheaded micro-credit programs in Southeast Asia, and was a World Vision regional manager in West Africa. In his thirties, he became a leader in the rise of Silicon Valley, both as a master of turning good ideas into very profitable ones and as a venture capitalist. His work was the basis for a number of case studies at the Harvard Business School. He followed that season of life by becoming a diplomat. He was named the United States Consul General and Chief of Mission to Bermuda by President George W. Bush.
