Eisner wants to stay in show biz

June 11, 2005|Reuters

When Michael Eisner ends his 20-year reign as chief executive of the Walt Disney Co. in September, he intends to land another job in show business.

"I didn't pass medical school, and I'm not good at organic chemistry," he told the New York Post in an interview published Friday. "So it will have to be some other entertainment-related company -- TV, movies, Internet, Broadway. I just don't know yet."

Eisner, 63, is currently touting his newly published memoir, "Camp." In it, he says everything he learned about leadership and teamwork came from his boyhood experiences at camp: "Leading a troop through the woods was my lone experience at leadership until my 30s. In my 20s, I was Xeroxing and getting laundry done."
