The speech will consist of what he learned as he travelled India for three months during his sabbatical last semester.

The event will take place on Wednesday, April 3, 2013, at 1:30 p.m. at the Garden City Casino, 51 Cathedral Ave, Garden City, NY. Refreshments will be served. Guest are most welcome for a $5 fee at the door.

He has been nominated by students to Who’s Who among America’s Teachers. 

The Robert B. Willumstad School of Business is focused on developing ethical, effective leaders in the industry.
