Karl J. Krayer, President of Creative Communication Network, will be the program speaker for the University of Texas at Arlington ALPFA (Association of Latino Professionals for America) on October 16 at noon.
His program, “Get Into Your Learning Zone,” motivates listeners to live in ways consistent with a dynamic and evolving world, rather than a static one. This is a summary of his program:
We operate out of our comfort zones. When circumstances require us to do things differently, we can view them as opportunities to develop and grow. Rather than focus upon gaps, opportunities, and weaknesses that prevent you from succeeding, identify and leverage your strengths for greater success. Use your strengths to perform in challenging circumstances that you may be not as good in, or may have never tried to succeed with.
ALPFA is the largest Latino association for business professionals and students dedicated to enhancing opportunities for Latinos and building leadership. It has chapters nationwide, with more than 22,000 members.
At UTA, ALPFA provides many benefits to aspiring students interested in accounting, finance, marketing, management, information systems, or other related fields. All UTA Students are invited. Benefits of student membership include access to scholarship opportunities, skills development workshops, professional growth, networking with key hiring professionals and sponsors, access to Fortune 500 jobs and internships, and discounts on various ALPFA events.
