“Be Critical, Persistent, and Transforming”

The D2C Tour traveled to Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland, College Park, Wednesday, October 8, 2014, for a lively and impactful discussion about empowerment, entrepreneurism, and doing the right thing in business to achieve optimal success. The event, “Be Critical, Persistent, and Transforming,” proved to provide an educational, informative and productive day filled with D2C industry experts’ inspiring stories shared with the unforgettable students and members of the local community in attendance.

Thank you to UMD and the entire campus community for your contributions to making this a highly successful D2C event!

“I found the session more humbling and insightful than I ever could have anticipated and am thankful I was fortunate enough to attend.”

~ Kevin Rudd, Finance Student, University of Maryland, Class of 2016

Many thanks to Mr. Williams and the speakers at last night’s presentation at The Smith Business School. I am a parent of a high school senior and was amazed at how this event clicked with my daughter and fueled her passion to succeed in business. She was so impressed by Dr. Brooks, Mr. Fantegrossi, Mr. Simeon and Mr. Reid and all of their accomplishments. So hoping that she is admitted to UM and the Smith School of Business so that she can get a great foundation for success (LOVED that you talked about relationships and helping each other out—I have stressed this as a life lesson and especially in the business world). Thank you for your time, talents and sharing with our children.”

~ Beth W., Parent, local high school student
