Event to Examine Communicating Effectively in a 21st Century World

HENNIKER, September 18, 2017  – New England College is pleased to announce that its President’s Speaker Series will kick off the fall season by hosting Larry Weber, a PR and marketing guru who has developed multiple successful business ventures, authored five forward-thinking marketing books, and co-founded the largest interactive advocacy organization in the world. From horror stories to memorable moments and lessons learned over a career, Weber will share stories of his experiences in a visit to Henniker this month.

Larry Weber is currently Chairman and Founder of Racepoint Global, an integrated global marketing agency. Weber founded The Weber Group, the world’s largest public relations firm in the ’90s. The Interpublic Group of Companies purchased The Weber Group in 1996, and in 2000 he was named chairman and CEO of Interpublic’s Advanced Marketing Services, a $3 billion unit including the company’s public relations, research and analytics, and entertainment holdings.  Larry is also a guest lecturer at the Tuck School of Business and was a speaker and member of Oxford’s winning Union Debate team, at the annual Silicon Valley Comes to Oxford, in 2013.

“Larry is a gifted communicator and business leader,” said New England College President Dr. Michele Perkins. “His insights are sure to be stimulating and inspiring. Our students and community guests greatly benefit from direct conversation with our speakers, and we look forward to hearing from Larry as he shares his expertise and experiences in public relations and marketing.”  The NEC President’s Speaker Series is open to the public at no cost.
