6:20PM - 7:00PM          Keynote Address featuring Greg E. Hill

According to Greg E. Hill, everybody has a dream and the opportunity to achieve it. Why most students and young adults fail to fulfill their full potential is simply because they start too late or they believe that they do not have a right to sit at the table. Through his personal story of perseverance and hitting rock bottom Greg E. Hill will layout a foundation of when you don’t feel like enough is when you have the right tools, for anything in life. From the classroom to the boardroom Greg will discuss how to tap into your potential to make you feel unstoppable while leveraging what makes you unique in the workplace. 

7:00PM – 8:00PM          Networking Reception

Your Role: Each employer will be assigned a cocktail table with students. If there is more than one representative from your company present, each of you will be assigned a different table. Please feel free to use this time to tell the students about your company, your career path, networking stories, and any other career related advice. Students may also seek general career advice. You are welcome to bring marketing materials for this but please do not bring any display boards. We will also have some networking cards available to help facilitate the conversation.
