Business Leadership Lecture Series to feature Shelly Lazarus

5:30 pm

In this speaking event, open to the University of Miami community, Shelly Lazarus, chair of Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide, will be open to questions on the topics of advertising, branding, and leadership.

The event will be held on Tuesday, January 25 at 5:30 p.m. in the McLamore Executive Education Center, third-floor dining room, at the School of Business Administration.

Lazarus has been described as one of the most powerful executives in advertising. One of a handful of women to graduate from Columbia University with an MBA in the early 1970s, Lazarus propelled herself through the corporate world to become chair and CEO of the billion-dollar advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather in 1997. Encouraged by legendary founder David Ogilvy, Lazarus became an evangelist for the power of brands and created an integrated multimedia advertising giant with clients worldwide. A role model for businesswomen, Lazarus has stressed the need for balance between work and family life, and has advocated that people love the work they do.
