NSLS Speaker Re-Broadcast featuring Genevieve Thiers

October 18, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The National Society of Leadership & Success offers a Speaker Broadcast series each semester.  Tonight will be a re-broadcast of our first fall speaker, Genevieve Thiers.

Genevieve Thiers is a Chicago-based entrepreneur, investor, mentor and trained opera singer.  She launched her first company, Sittercity.com, in 2001 while she was a college student in Boston.  Sittercity.com is America’s first company to take caregiving services online and now serves clients such as the U.S. Department of Defense, Mastercard, and Monster.  Genevieve has been recognized at the White House as a Small Business Administration Young Entrepreneur Champion and her companies have won over 18 major awards, including the INC 500 list and a CNN Young Heroes feature. Genevieve’s work has been featured by the TODAY show, Ellen, The View, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and TIME.

This event is free and open to the public. UVa-Wise students may receive one cultural activity credit for attending an NSLS Speaker Broadcast. Learn more about our events.
