GREENSBORO, N.C. – Bo Batchelder, a standout high school and college football player who went on to a 40-year career in business, will speak during a class from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16, at Greensboro College.

The event is free and open to the public. It will be held in Room 214 of Proctor Hall East.

Batchelder will be speaking to the college’s Leadership Fitness class on, “Are You Fit to Be a Positive Leader?” His presentation is based on the first chapter of the book “Leadership Fitness” by longtime football coach and college-athletics administrator Homer Rice.

The evening will focus on the importance of being self-motivated, asking students, “Can you find your inner drive to become successful?”

Batchelder is the founder and president of Batchelder & Associates, a Raleigh-based management and marketing company. Previously he was owner and chairman of a Taco Bell franchisee and an executive with Hardee’s Food Systems.
