Lynn to host International Business and Entrepreneurship Symposium

Featuring keynote speakers Kevin Moffitt, chief digital officer at Office Depot, and Jessica Jackley, KIVA co-founder

International Business Symposium

Lynn University’s College of Business and Management will host the first annual International Business and Entrepreneurship (IB&E) Symposium Wednesday, Nov. 15. Business professionals, faculty and students will gather for this one-day forum featuring nationally-recognized speakers, panelists and innovators. 

The IB&E Symposium aims to unite the business community with educators and students to explore connections and advancements in global enterprise. It will offer roundtable discussions to develop passion, purpose, and professionalism and more than 20 interactive breakout sessions on current issues, long-term business management, sustainability, legacy creation, and bold new practices.

“The Boca Raton area is a gateway to international business and a flourishing community of entrepreneurs," said Dr. RT Good, dean of the College of Business Management. “We want to create a platform for local business leaders to gather, share ideas, network and inspire future professionals. And as the region’s most international university, there’s no better place for it to take place than Lynn.”

Two keynote speakers will headline the event: Office Depot Chief Digital Officer Kevin Moffitt and KIVA Co-Founder Jessica Jackley. Jackley’s presentation is part of the Dively Frontiers in Globalization Lecture Series, which is made possible by the George S. Dively Foundation and is sponsored in part by the R.A. Ritter Foundation. 

The IB&E Symposium is coordinated in partnership with the International Business Alliance (IBA) of the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce and the Human Resource Association of Palm Beach County (HRPBC). The event is supported by title sponsor Sodexo, as well as the Boca Raton Airport Authority, Florida Power and Light, and Northwestern Mutual.

IB&E registration will open at 7:30 a.m., with presentations and sessions taking place 8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m., at Lynn’s Mohammed Indimi International Business Center and the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center. Early bird registration is $60 through Nov. 1, and standard registration is $95. Groups of three or more will receive a discounted price of $55 each.
