JAMPACT is honored to host the Associate Director of MBA Admissions at Columbia Business School and former JAMPACT Vice President ’05, Michael Robinson at our upcoming General Body Meeting on July 15. Mr. Robinson will share with us his thought-provoking presentation entitled, ‘The Swag Speech.’
THE SWAG SPEECH:
The ‘SWAG SPEECH’ is a conversation about the link between confidence and excellence. The name sounds hip hop inspired because it is in parts and makes use of pop culture, sports, political and historical references. Mr. Robinson will illustrate his points using icons like Usain Bolt, Muhammad Ali, hip hop star Jay Z but the presentation will also cite Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln and President Barack Obama. It is hoped that the attendees will leave the event with specific tips – a road map if you will – on how to be more competitive in this challenging economy and also with a clear understanding that excellence is the nexus between Passion, Purpose and Preparation.
