Last week, STEM Premier stopped in on the FBLA 2016 National Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.
FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) - Phi Beta Lambda, Inc. is the largest career student organization in the world, comprised of over 200,000 members. Their mission is to bring business and education together through leadership and career development programs.
Highlighted by Keynote Speaker David Novak, Founder of Yum! Brands - one of the world’s largest restaurant companies - the Conference provided an opportunity for FBLA’s student leadership to share ideas and engage in professional development opportunities. The four-day conference is considered to be the pinnacle of the FBLA-PBL experience.
While attending, we presented to the students about the importance of building their digital presence to get discovered. Our increasingly digital culture makes having a professional online footprint a necessity for students to network and connect with schools and businesses. That is why students can create their profile for free on STEM Premier.
Our message was well-received, which came as no surprise to us. After all, they don’t call these savvy students the “Future Business Leaders of America” for nothing!
