The Business Alumni Chapter, in conjunction with SouthFlorida CEO magazine, hosted another successful South Florida Speaker Series event on October 19, 2006, at the Biltmore Hotel. Albert Santalo (EMBA ’97), the featured CEO, shared his secrets for building his company and gave insights into lessons learned from his journey from starting up to growing up.
John Lage, who attended the event, said that Santalo’s lecture was “one of the most honest and thorough CEO lectures that he had ever heard.”
The Business Alumni Chapter looks forward to additional CEO lectures in January and March. Visit the college’s web site (http://business.fiu.edu) alumni events page to see more pictures of this event.
