As a part of our new Student to Alumni Program (we need a name for the program – anyone got a good idea?), we invited presentation expert Tim Koegel to campus on January 26, 2006. Tim’s forte is in preparing CEOs and other professionals to be top-notch presenters.

Tim’s presentation and his sage advise were powerful.  He accomplished two things that night.  First, he offered substantive but simple advice useful to everyone in the room.  Second, and without even mentioning it, he reinforced the advantage gained by many of our young men in taking a course or two, regardless of their major, from the Rhetoric Department.

Our goals for the evening were to prepare our men to better perform in interview situations and to help them be their best when engaging our alumni network.  I think we accomplished both.

As you can see, Tim (second from left) fielded many questions after the presentation.
