The purpose of Terry Talks is to connect younger alumni with alumni who have experienced successful careers in different areas of expertise. These events will serve to develop younger alumni and connect them with mentors in those professions in which they seek to do business.
What is Terry Talks?
Terry Talks programs are small events (15 people) for young alumni of the Terry College of Business. These events complement the larger gatherings hosted by the Young Alumni Board (YAB) each year.
Programs are industry focused. (Examples include Real Estate, Media and Marketing, Private Wealth Management and Finance.)
Where and when are Terry Talks?
Programs are hosted by Terry College alumni in their homes, offices, businesses or restaurants. Alumni hosts serve as the main “speaker” of the discussion and encourage participation in the conversation among all participants. Alumni hosts cover any expenses associated with the program.
What are people saying about Terry Talks?
“Hosting a TerryTalks event in my home was a great experience. It gave me an opportunity to meet a new generation of alumni interested in real estate and share with them my many years in the industry. In doing so, I felt a great sense of pride in giving back to the Terry College. It was minimal effort on my part as the Young Alumni Board handled many of the responsibilities. I encourage other alumni to consider helping the College and our fellow alumni in this way.” Joe Terrell, BBA 1974, Highgate Partners
