Executive Speaker Series

The Executive Speaker Series brings accomplished individuals from the business community to the College to lecture before a student assembly on current topics and to give insights into career development, business ethics, and life skills. 

These events enhance the students’ classroom learning experience and provide executive role models for students to emulate.  Two speakers are scheduled per semester; the format is a 45-minute presentation followed by Q&A.
