Happy 35th Anniversary NUMEM! Pictures and Video from Industry Night!

“The event on Thursday went about as well as it possibly could have gone. It exceeded my hopes and expectations.” Those were MEM Director Mark Werwath’s reflections on the First Annual MEM Industry Night, February 13, celebrating 35 years of an MEM program that just keeps getting stronger.

The evening started with a student, alumni  and Industry networking event, followed by a speech from Guy Kawasaki, an early Apple employee that helped make “Mac” the household name it is today. Guy delivered a fantastic speech on Enchantment (taken from his book on the same topic) and leadership. The evening finished with a dinner and the opportunity for all the guests to interact. “I really liked it! Guy is an incredible speaker!” current MEM student Patricio Azcunaga said about the event.

Motorola Mobility provided incredible support and funding in order to make the event possible. “Motorola Mobility remains one of the major high tech leaders in the Chicagoland area, despite all the recent changes. Alumni Iqbal Arshad is one their most senior and visible technology leaders and we are very fortunate to have him on our advisory board,” Director Werwath shared. “I will always remember and appreciate the efforts they gave to make this night a huge success for MEM and for McCormick.” Similar thanks went out to HAVI Global Solutions, and Hu-Friedy Mfg. Co., LLC, the Gold and Silver sponsors for Industry Night.
