2019 Tapia Conference

A Conversation with Richard Tapia

Thursday, September 19, 2019 — 4:30PM - 5:30PM


This session is intended to be motivational and is directed at students. By Richard Tapia sharing both his professional and personal life stories, including the many adversities and the many successes, he wants to let students know that “si se puede”. Yes it is possible to go from a humble beginning to the top of one’s career dreams, but this path could likely be long and winding with many challenges and obstacles. However, we must not lose sight of the pot of gold at the end of the path. After the initial sharing of his life stories, Richard will engage in meaningful discussions focused on questions from the students.
