Topic: Take a giant leap into your future STEM career
Speaker: Dr. Richard Liu,
Dr. Richard Liu founded LEAP.ai, a professional development platform to help students and young professionals discover amazing opportunities while learning about their own passions and abilities. As a long time tech exec at Google, Richard was a key leader of a number of Google businesses, including Enterprise Search, Shopping, Offers and Project Fi. It was here that he became deeply aware of how hard it is to both attract and develop talented young people. As an investing partner with TEEC Angel Fund, he regularly puts his money where his heart is – supporting early stage companies solving the world’s most intractable problems.
Richard holds a PhD in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Florida, a master’s in automation from Tsinghua University in Beijing and an MBA from Southern Methodist University.
Dr. Liu’s talk will focus on providing insights into how tech companies in Silicon Valley operate. He will touch on topics including building amazing products to delight users, culture creation, and talent acquisition and development. Given his personal experience as an exec at Google as well as an investor, Richard will share his perspective on star performers in tech – who they are and how to become one.
All Students & the Public Are Welcome to Attend (RSVP for food order)
