Virtual breakfast w/Neal Dempsey (for Interdisciplinary and Departmental Honors students)

October 30, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Students with Neal Dempsey

Neal Dempsey is a successful venture capitalist and super philanthropist Double Dawg who teaches in Foster school of business and loves to visit with Honors students from all majors.

All current Honors students are invited to join Neal for an online chat where he’ll share decades of stories and experience, plus pointed advice on how YOU can make the most of college and seed opportunities to do well and do good in life after college, too.

Neal encourages us all to take big risks as often as possible, saying: “Especially if you’ve spent your life doing everything right, it’s important to learn how to fail. You won’t enjoy it! But you’ve got to do it or you’re probably not challenging yourself enough. The world needs you to keep trying. Fail! Then pick yourself up and figure out what to do, next.”

Grab your coffee/tea and whatever you call “breakfast” and join Neal for a quick and powerful pep talk on Friday, Oct. 30!

This event is exclusive to UW Honors students. Check your inbox and Honors weekly announcements for RSVP link.
