High Point University to Host Morris MorrisonHIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 6, 2012 – High Point University’s Phillips School of Business is hosting motivational speaker Morris Morrison as a part of their Entrepreneurship Week. Morrison will be speaking at 7 p.m. on Nov. 13 in Phillips 120. This event is open to the public and tickets are not required.

In conjunction with Global Entrepreneurship Week, Morrison will be the kick-off event speaker to motivate the students to participate in the rest of the week. Morrison is a nationally recognized motivational speaker and leadership development professional.

He will be presenting his message entitled “In Position for Success.” Morrison was orphaned after the death of his parents, and in his teens, he lost his adoptive parents as well. However, he considers the tough circumstances as blessings. He has dedicated his life to motivating others because he believes every person has gifts and unique abilities to impact the world. 

“Morrison has created a business from his story and is successfully running and growing it,” says Lou Anne Flanders-Stec, director of the Center for Entrepreneurship and assistant professor of business administration. “Our students love hearing about the successes and failures of other entrepreneurs.”
