October 23, 2012 IADT General, IADT Detroit 0 Comments

IADT-Detroit's Retail Merchandise Management department recently hosted its third session of the Entrepreneurial Leadership Series. The workshop focused on entrepreneurial leadership and introduced IADT students to successful entrepreneurs and business executives within Wayne County.

The esteemed panel included Anthony O. Kellum, president of Kellum Capital Group, Inc., and Ron Stallworth, owner of Stallworth & Associates, LLC.

As described by Instructor Carrie Devone, once the workshop began, it flowed effortlessly. There were approximately 25 students in attendance and the common response from the students was summed up in a word: “AWESOME!” Everyone was in agreement that the panelists were phenomenal, relatable, inspiring and funny. The panelists were raw, uninhibited and they kept their message real on every aspect of entrepreneurship.

The Entrepreneurial Leadership Series was launched by the RMM department earlier this year. This series promotes business and leadership skills from multifaceted perspectives. Regardless of program of study or position held, students, faculty and staff are welcome to participate in the workshops any time. Watch for future announcements of upcoming sessions featuring a variety of entrepreneurial leadership topics from reputable industry leaders in our local communities!
