On Thursday, February 23, The BDS Agency Founder and President Brian D. Stanchak spoke at Intercollegiate Leadership Wilkes-Barre‘s Professional and Social Networking event at Luzerne County Community College.  Stanchak’s delivered his popular “It’s Not Who You Know, It’s Who Knows You” presentation to around 50 students from six local universities. His presentation was followed with a question and answer session with those in attendance. 

According to the Leadership Wilkes-Barre website, “Intercollegiate Leadership Wilkes-Barre is designed to assemble a diverse group of college student leaders to develop new leadership skills, to discuss campus issues and to explore economic, social, cultural and political trends in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Tuition for the Intercollegiate Leadership Wilkes-Barre program is funded by the participants’ college or university. Participating colleges and universities include: Keystone College, King’s College, Luzerne County Community College, Misericordia University, Penn State Wilkes-Barre, and Wilkes University.”

In addition to his presentation, Stanchak was chosen to be a member of the Community Connection program, which “matches Intercollegiate Leadership’s talented, driven students with area professionals in order to facilitate a job shadowing experience in the student’s field of interest.” Stanchak was matched with two students from Kings College and Misericordia University to provide insight into the careers of being a coach and sports agent.
