Proforma founder, Greg Muzzillo, recently spoke at the NextGen™ Speaker Series in Naples, Florida and donated his $5,000 speaker honorarium to the Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida. The prestigious NextGen Speaker Series is a gathering of America’s most distinguished business leaders. Keynote speakers included world-renowned entrepreneurs and CEOs that shared their extraordinary life and business journeys.
“Achievable, believable entrepreneurship,” said Muzzillo when describing his own mentorship teachings. “I owe a great deal of my success to the many successful people who kindly offered me amazing advice and mentorship. Now, at this season in my life, it is my honor and obligation to share my experience and encouragement with the next generation of aspiring and emerging entrepreneurs.”
The NextGenTM Speaker Series started with a simple question. Michael Benson, CEO of Benson Blackburn, asked industry leaders to visit his office for a mentorship session with his team. His team was so fascinated by what they heard, they decided this information and these life journeys should be shared with the community. This led to the establishment of the NextGen™ Speaker Series, held two to three times per year at a private venue by invitation only.
“I hope that in some small way my donation helps the next generation of business leaders to dream bigger and build amazing lives and businesses,” said Muzzillo.
Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida is a volunteer based organization offering kindergarten-12th grade programs that foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and inspire students to dream big and reach their full potential.
