On Tuesday, December 8th, the Rothman Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship hosted a Morris Tech Meetup event in the Orangerie and welcomed back FDU alumnus, Russ Edelman, BA’89 (Florham) to campus.

Edelman is the author  “Nice Guys Can Get The Corner Office” and has been featured on ABC’s “Money Matters,” MSNBC, Fox News, in “Forbes,” the “Boston Globe,” as well as numerous radio stations and podcasts across the country.

Attendees were encouraged by his lecture on nice guys succeeding in the corporate environment and stayed afterwards for networking.
