Besides, what is Ren Zhengfei's most concerned about? Education! Universities, middle schools and primary schools.
Ren Zhengfei's Educational Complex
Chatting with Ren Zhengfei, many topics are about education.
Ren Zhengfei was born in an educational family, his parents were teachers, and his father was a high school principal. Knowledge is power, the core values that Ren Zhengfei's parents instill in their children. Later, Ren Zhengfei set up an education fund named after his parents.
Before 1998, Huawei's core values were: rejuvenating the country through science and education, and repaying the country through industry!
On December 1, 2015, Ren Zhengfei donated 1 million yuan to the 110th anniversary of Duyun No. 1 Middle School.
On June 2, 2016, Ren Zhengfei re-entered the Great Hall of the People 34 years later and addressed the National Conference on Scientific and Technological Innovation. He devoted a great deal of space to education:

Talks between Ren Zhengfei and Hu Lijun, Principal of Duyun No. 1 Middle School, Ren Zhengfei and Hu Lijun, Principal of Duyun No. 1 Middle School
The agenda of the meeting is as follows.
Huawei's team collected the mottos of 177 high schools in China, 26 high schools in the United States and 37 universities around the world for analysis and comparison. On this basis, three school motto schemes of Duyun Middle School are put forward.
Resolve, uphold, take responsibility;
Vision, will, character;
Look at the world and strive for self-improvement.
At present, these three are reflected on Duyun Middle School's website.
The second one is Ren Zhengfei's message to young people, which comes from the first edition of "Will Huawei Fall Next?" Ren Zhengfei's explanation is:
Broad vision, strong will, with other people's character in mind.
On the morning of the 26th, we discussed the motto of Duyun No. 1 Middle School.
On the afternoon of the 26th, a discussion with the entrepreneurs and Ren Zhengfei turned into a collective interview with the entrepreneurs.
The topics of the interviews revolve around three aspects:
(2) Ren Zhengfei's personal experience.
(3) About Chinese enterprises.
Because of the dialogue between entrepreneurs, the content is more pragmatic, more grounded and more in-depth.
At this meeting, I met Mr. Liu Chuanzhi for the first time.
Ren Zhengfei and Liu Chuanzhi have many similarities. They are both born in 1944 (the latter's birthday is about half a year larger than the former). They belong to the same family. They are also among the leading enterprises in their field. They all have military careers (in China, Zhang Ruimin, Wang Shi, Ni Runfeng and others have military careers).
But there are differences between them. Liu Chuanzhi sat there, kind to everyone, with a slight smile on his face, giving people a sense of dignity and amiability. Ren Zhengfei is more active and informal. If you look for a word to describe, one is like a noble in society, one is like a general on the battlefield. At the meeting, Liu Chuanzhi seldom spoke and listened more quietly. Ren Zhengfei not only talks a lot, but also pays attention to tea, projector or umbrella from time to time (the meeting is open in the garden), maybe because Ren Zhengfei is the owner.
Two people meet, as the ancients said: Having pity, a good man cherishes a good man.
Liu Chuanzhi also talked about the conference later (this should be the first time that the conference was disclosed in the media). The excerpt is as follows (see Liu Chuanzhi: Ren Zhengfei is the person whom I most admire and appreciate):
Duyun No. 1 Middle School is Ren Zhengfei's Alma mater. His father served as principal for three years. His father devoted his whole life to education and devoted all his efforts to it for more than 50 years. When the current school leader introduced the history of the school and the deeds of his old father, Mr. Ren Morson, I noticed Ren Zhengfei. I think he should have heard this kind of content countless times, but still listened so attentively and emotionally.
At the moment, I am reading his article about missing his parents. I read this article carefully because it deeply resonates with me. He and I were born in the same year. Our background was different, but the political hardships and trials of the previous generation were almost the same. Salute to the old man. I know you're coming to see me in a few days. I'm looking forward to it. Whether people like to listen or not, it's true that our elder brother and I talked about addiction.
I was thinking, after reading the old man's article, what made me pick up my pen and write the above words? Who do I want to say to? Speaking to the old man, let him know that I am his bosom friend? Speaking to my relatives, friends, classmates and colleagues, let's cherish today's life more?
Mr. Liu Chuanzhi highly appraised the meeting. He said to the senior Lenovo leaders who accompanied him:
After reading Mr. Liu Chuanzhi's article, you will know what is heart-to-heart impression, what is pity, what is friendship, what is friendship, what is bosom friend, what is emotion.
Here, salute to the two old brothers! ____________
