Robins Speaker Series

Their titles range from CEO and CFO to authors, publishers, and athletes. Speakers come here to share their captivating stories of the business world -- and everyone is invited.

The Robins School hosts two signature speaker series each academic year: C-Suite Conversations and the Robins Executive Speaker Series.

These public events are purposefully designed to be simultaneously informative and collegial, bringing together University students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members alike. By fostering a strong sense of community within the halls of the Robins School, these series of installments will exemplify the core elements of our strategic plan and will advance us on our path to providing our students with the best business education in the world.

Presented by the Robins School of Business; supported by PNC Bank and ChamberRVA.
