On October 25, 2016, 33 Illinois VEI firms met at the Northern Illinois University-Naperville Campus to learn how to successfully run a VE firm.
670 VE employees had an opportunity to hear from keynote speakers Abhi Rajmane and Nic Zito regarding entrepreneurship, innovation, and creativity.
Students also attended a business session which included topics such as ethics, time management, and professionalism; all focused specifically on developing workplace skills. The highlight for employees were the department-specific sessions. Throughout the day, students were provided opportunities to network and collaborate.[custom_gallery source=”media: 15642, 15641,15640,15639,15638,15637,15636,15635,15634,15633,15632,15631,15630,15629,15628,15627,15626,15625,15624,15623,15622,15621,15620,15619,15618,15617,15616,15615,15614,15613,15612,15611″ limit=”100″ link=”lightbox” width=”460″ height=”350″ title=”never”]
