Inspirational Speaker and Author to Deliver Lecture on Business Skills Tonight

Zan Monroe, the author of "Stories of Uncle Adrian: A Guide to Mastery in Your Life" and "Ninja Selling," will present a special program for Old Dominion University business students tonight from 6-7 p.m., in room 1005 of Constant Hall.

With a 30-year career as a businessman, speaker, teacher, author and consultant, Monroe started his first business at age 16 and established his first corporation at 21. He began his career as a realtor in 1985, working as an agent, sales manager, broker and owner. He holds the ABR, ABRM, CRB, CRS, GRI and ITI designations from the National Association of Realtors, and he is a member of the prestigious Institute of Residential Marketing at the National Association of Home Builders.

Monroe will speak from the "Mastery in Business" chapter of "Stories of Uncle Adrian," covering such topics as "Plan Your Work, Work Your Plan: The Bear in the Woods" and "Know Your Customers: Funeral for a Dog." The book will be available for purchase at a discounted price.

The presentation is one of a series of talks focusing on negotiations skills funded through a gift from ODU graduate Dick Thurmond, the president of William E. Wood & Associates Realtors. A limited number of seats are available to the public.
