Jimmy Blackmon Presentation

We are honored to welcome business consultant, author and retired Army Colonel Jimmy Blackmon to UGA on Thursday, October 21, where he will spend a little time talking about battle-proven leadership and those special veterans responsible for shaping his thinking over the years. Jimmy and SVRC Director Jon Segars first met in college in the late 1980s and now have shared many of the same type experiences; sometimes together and often times worlds apart.

Jon shares, “In addition to being a great leader, Jimmy has always been a great storyteller, and you will not be disappointed in the time we will have together.”

Jimmy will have for us signed copies of several of his books, and you can choose a book at no cost just for attending. View his books here.

Please join us in Room 102 of the Miller Learning Center on October 21 at
4:30 p.m. RSVP today.
