Thursday, October 11, 2012

Westminster College alumnus Ted Haynes('99) and Michael Smith, owners of Confluence Productions, a filmmaking company in Pittsburgh, PA know more than a thing or two about starting your own business. The duo will present on Friday October 19 from 11:30am to 12:30pm in Westminster's McKelvey Campus Center at the Witherspoon-Maple Room. Lunch is provided for this event, courtesy of the Westminster College Career Center!

During their presentation, called Building a Business from the Ground, Up: Positioning Yourself for Success Now, they will be discussing the attainability of owning your own business as a recent college graduate and what current students should be doing to align themselves with a successful future.

Ted holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, has a background in sales management, and has written, produced, directed and acted in nearly 20 short and feature films.

Michael is an award-winning Producer, Director and Cinematographer and has 25 years of movie making experience. He obtained an Associate's Degree in Electronics by age 18.
