Clay Loges ’68 began the November luncheon with a review of his undergraduate fraternity experience that led to his being elected the Student Body president for the Univ. of Puget Sound.
Combining that student government experience with his business training at IBM, Clay ended up in his career of serial entrepreneurialism. From pioneering the ten minute oil change industry to founding one of the Soviet Union’s first telecom businesses, Clay treated the luncheon group to some colorful insider views. While building the Russia-based business to 800+ employees and 70,000+ customers, Clay had a number of unique experiences to share with the group.
Clay also discussed the revolution of the digital age. This included his participation in the mobile revolution being led by smart phones and mobile apps. His current company is www.YodioTours.com offering digital tours on the Android and iPhones. Anyone can create photo/audio presentations at his production site www.Yodio.com to be played via apps on Android and iPhones.
While living at 4503, Matt Conroy ’11, did a spring internship that included producing walking tours of UW’s Greek Row. You can view these tours and nearly three dozen other tours on the website and through the app. You can find the Android app by searching “Yodio” on the Android Market.
