Launch Pad Weekly Workshop: Bootstrapping Your New Business

12:30 pm

The Launch Pad invites you to its community of entrepreneurs for the upcoming Weekly Workshop “Bootstrapping Your New Business” on Monday, January 31 from 12:30 to 1:15 p.m. at Toppel Career Center. Despite the dream of some entrepreneurs to meet a VC with deep pockets, the fact is that 99.9 percent of business owners will struggle alone, pulling themselves up by their bootstraps. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. With a little luck and a lot of pluck, bootstrapping a business can be both financially and emotionally rewarding. There are no guarantees of success when self-financing a business, of course, but there are some guidelines that will make the game go smoothly. Join The Launch Pad to learn how you can make it alone. The workshop is free and open to the community, including students, alumni, faculty, and staff. Lunch will be provided. RSVP to [email protected].

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.
