Sam Seltzer ’48 Mentors Forum
“It was a pleasure to be a part of the Mentor’s Forum last year. I was amazed to see the depth and breadth of experiences that the mentors brought with them. Having personal conversations with owners of other family businesses and with family business consultants came as a great learning experience, and I was surprised by the kind of support that the mentors provided during the forum and after. This is has been one of my best experiences at Cornell.”

“I’m so glad I was able to attend. I got some fantastic advice and will definitely be in touch with the folks I spoke to. This could not have come at a better time for me, as my mom is looking to start formal succession talks next week.” — Mentors Forum Participant
