This seminar will be a discussion of the fundamentals required to become a successful start-up entrepreneur and how to sustain that business in today’s volatile world.

A particular emphasis will be on the importance of defining and integrating values into your organization’s culture, as you serve others during your career and in your business, and as you harvest the rewards of your business.

Illustrations and stories from the real world will be shared from Allon’s entrepreneurial journey, from his new book, Launching the Entrepreneur Ship, and from those in attendance.
