Hats

Bob will share his experiences and lessons learned in a short presentation followed by a question and discussion session. Bring your friends and stop by the Pavlis Honors College Collaboration Space on the 7th floor of the M&M building in room 722 Thursday, February 25th at 10:30am for a great story and insightful wisdom from a true entrepreneur.
