The Andreas School of Business held the 17th Executive Leadership Forum (ELF) on Oct. 2. Eric L. Poms, CEO of the Orange Bowl Committee (OBC), was the featured speaker and was interviewed by Dr. Gayle Workman on the subject of “Sport and Social Responsibility: A Career Path.”
Poms shared his personal and professional experience with the audience and emphasized the importance of establishing a set of personal and social core values in order to achieve success. Poms, who has served as CEO since 2006, has been at the forefront of the postseason college football season structure during its frequent era of growth, having been heavily involved in negotiations with the new College Football Playoff, Bowl Championship Series, Bowl Coalition and Bowl Alliance.
The Executive Leadership Forum (ELF) assists Barry University in developing a responsible community of business leaders by inviting seasoned executives to share their experience with students. ELF’s main strength is its distinct program structure, which provides powerful takeaways for both students and speakers.
