Profiles in Success

Herb Cohen, Founder/Host of Executive Leaders Radio, is an accomplished entrepreneur, having founded the 800-THE-PROS Marketing Management Company, the Pennsylvania Private Investors Group and QuiqMeds.  He co-founded Temple University's Center for the Advancement & Study of Entrepreneurship, University of Pennsylvania's Wharton Entrepreneurial Network & Fairleigh Dickinson University's Entrepreneurial Center and was asked to assist in the formation of Drexel University, Immaculata University and University of Maryland’s Entrepreneurial Centers.  These and other Universities want substantial CEOs involved in several primary activities: speaking in the classroom and mentoring students.  Additionally, each University does develop their own specialized activities to engage the CEO with the students, faculty, administration and charitable giving departments.  The students learn about the real world and students may get jobs.

Our passion is connecting CEOs with students to match the classroom with reality.

Because nobody meets more CEOs than ELR (800+ a year, typically running businesses of $10m+)!  We ask our guests in the greenroom if they are interested in becoming involved with our Universities and the resounding answer is "Yes, I would love to!".  In addition, in many cases, our cohosts offer to conduct Profiles in Success with our past Guests!”

Please let the team know that it was a privilege and honor to be a guest on Executive Leaders Radio. It was a very reflective time and helped me to see how my own life’s journey has helped mold and prepare me for what I would not have ordinarily been equipped
