LIONTalks is a web series presented by alumni and friends of A&M-Commerce and ETSU discussing their journeys open and honestly to teach students and other alumni that designing a life you love is part of a journey and the first step is to take the first step. 

We search year-round for speakers who will inform and inspire, surprise and delight. Presenters can represent A&M-Commerce across all industries and locations, there are no specifics. We want to tell your story to students to motivate them during times of uncertainty, help them see what could be in their future, and increase alumni engagement.

Listeners will learn about the speaker's successes, failures, and tips they want to give to students they wish someone had told them. The series will be pre-recorded, but will have a limited number of virtual seats available at the recording for students in that alumni's field to ask questions. 

Web Series Format

  • 10 minute introduction
  • 15 minute story from speaker
