Juan Ortiz will present Being a Successful Latino Male in Business Friday, Sept. 27,  in the Brown Ballroom at the Bone Student Center. The event, which is part of the Speaker Series at Illinois State University, is free and open to the public.

Coming from humble beginnings, Ortiz rose to his current role of executive vice president of business development for BluePay Processing, based out of Naperville. He manages more than 120 sales agents nationwide for the $5 billion processing company, and serves as part of the company’s acquisition team.

The seminar will consist of three different talks by Ortiz. In the keynote address, he will discuss the idea that “anyone can win in life, if they are willing to change.” He will also present talks titled “Conditioning From Abuse” and “Being a Successful Latino Male in Business”. More information about Ortiz’s presentation is available in the link below.

The event is sponsored by the Child Protection Network, the Illinois State University School of Social Work, the Illinois State University Latin American and Latino/a studies program, the Sage Foundation Fund, and the Social Work Club at Illinois State.
