A personal invite to the PEP Talks

Have you ever thought, "I wish I could go back in time and tell my younger self what I know now..." ?

Unless there are some major breakthroughs in quantum mechanics and string theory, that probably won't happen in our lifetime. But that should not prevent you from sharing your knowledge with other younger people, especially college students. They're at a critical inflection point in their lives - where they can explore different career options and start forging a path that is their own. The knowledge and guidance of professionals in a student's community can focus their energy on a career they are passionate about.

Unfortunately, outside of job fairs or corporate open houses, there are few opportunities dedicated to connecting students with the professional community. Until now.

The PEP Talks were created to help connect students with their passions and those who inspire. These talks are recurring events featuring 5 local professionals who are given 10 minutes each to share their wisdom, their passions and how they got to where they are now. Each talk is professionally video taped, edited and posted on the web site http://www.thepeptalks.com.

The emphasis is on "local" because even though we live in age of instant communication and technology, the face-to-fact interaction can never be replaced. Also - what better way to have students start building their network than meeting people in their city?

"Local" is also important is because The PEP Talks also serve as a powerful showcase for all the innovation, technologies, ideas, companies, and achievements that have originated here in Central Ohio. 

So please come to our first Event, this Thursday, January 22nd at the Landmark Theater in the South Campus Gateway. We expect over 180 students and professionals to attend, making this a truly meaningful experience. Hope to see you there.
