Life Lessons from a Leadership Lunch

On Thursday, MAcc students had the opportunity to hear from Mr. Craig Marshall, the Columbus Office Managing Partner for Ernst & Young. His presentation was part of the speaker series that Ernst & Young generously sponsors for MAcc students, and the room was packed. Mr. Marshall was engaging, entertaining, and extremely informative, and we learned from both his presentation style and speech. We heard advice on being flexible, following our passions, being involved in the community, and adhering to our values. All of these lessons were applicable to both our career paths and life in general, and Mr. Marshall openly shared about how his advice stemmed from and shaped his own experiences.

The way that Mr. Marshall presented was impressive. He incorporated trivia, humor, and audience participation into his presentation, which would have been interesting even without the added bonuses. We all learned a lot personally and professionally from Mr. Marshall, just as we do from other speakers and professors in the MAcc program!
