SAM hosts guest speaker, Domino's entrepreneur
BU's Society for Advancement of Management had an incredible guest speaker on Monday, Nov. 26, visit campus to share his experiences. Paul Dutton, of Danville, to share his experiences on being a successful entrepreneur. His presentation had a large turnout, and Dutton’s experiences had the whole classroom truly intrigued. He had a rather impressive resume as a member of the U.S. Army and put it all behind him to take a risk. This risk nonetheless has turned him into a very successful member of the Domino’s Pizza franchise.
Every member of SAM’s group and all attendees have taken various valuable lessons from Dutton, including fighting for your goals in life, even if those goals involve taking an unimaginable risk. Overall, Dutton stressed fighting for what you believe in and doing whatever possible to make ends meet. In addition, his beliefs in customer service and reliability prove that proper business strategies will set you apart from others. His presence was a valuable asset to SAM’s organization and his stories and accomplishments were extremely beneficial.
