Lessons from BRC Awards Ceremony Speaker

Mr. Steven A. Davis, CEO of Bob Evans Farms, Inc. delivered the keynote address at the Bell Resource Center Awards Ceremony on April 2. The key lessons that I gained from his presentation were:

  • Have a mentor inside your organization, in your industry, and outside your profession. Successful mentoring and advocacy is like having your own Board of Directors.
  • Choose mentors who will tell it like it is and who tell you what you need to hear- not necessarily what you want to hear.
  • Look at the trajectory of your role models and emulate them
  • Become familiar with some of the “Heavy Hitters” in your community (e.g. Who’s Who in Black Columbus)
  • Always remember that family comes first! It doesn’t have to be lonely at the top.
  • Read “Purpose Driven Life” before graduating.

It’s always refreshing and invigorating to hear words of wisdom such as his. More fuel in the tank! Onward and upward.
