    Are talk shows as we remember them dead? Ricot Aladin, founder and host of the Professional Lunch Podcast, doesn’t think so! Ricot has found success in merging a nostalgic format with two modern communication tactics — native social video and podcasts. Professional Lunch has hosted a variety of high-impact guests from various backgrounds, supporting a mission of providing resources that aid in career exploration and professional growth to high school students. Join FMPC for an informal lunch discussion to hear Ricot’s story and engage in a conversation about the future of broadcasting face-to-face communication to diverse audiences to reach and inspire young people.

    About our speaker: Mr. Aladin is an experienced leader with a unique skill set that blends education, industry, and opportunity. Pair this with his decade of leading teams from various backgrounds and the ability to use both natural and professionally developed skills, he has a recipe that builds relationships and creates partnerships, projects, programs, companies, and communities for success and measurable impacts. Ricot’s style is driven, focused, and energetic with a story that inspires others.
