Business Network Symposium

Held three times per year (October, January and April), the Business Network Symposium (BNS) is a complimentary and informative morning for the Tampa Bay business community and The University of Tampa students. Each BNS program will present three CEOs of local businesses. These businesses are well known, but changing; new and emerging; or new to the Tampa Bay area. The CEOs of these firms will be given the opportunity to share their business story – accomplishments, lessons learned and future plans – with the local community.

The 2015-2016 Business Network Symposia are sponsored by   LCG and hosted by The University of Tampa Board of Fellows.

Each speaker will have 10-15 minutes, and the event will conclude with a Q-and-A session. This symposium is open to the public and has complimentary admission. Watch a video of the most recent symposium. View January and April 2014 BNS photos.
