TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Florida State College of Business is hosting a round table with executive business owners in hopes to teach students leadership skills to move forward in the industry.
Hosted by the FSU undergraduate program in risk management and insurance, the lunch series introduces students to successful business executives in our area.
Tuesday's featured speaker was Hyatt Brown, the former CEO and president of Brown & Brown.
In addition to his business ventures, brown is a former member of the Florida Legislature, where he served as both a representative and speaker of the house.
He says coming to FSU is more than just about sharing his experience.

The speaker series will continue throughout the spring semester.
