PISCATAWAY, NJ - Dr.  Peter Stavrianidis, Ph.D., a successful entrepreneur and fourth-generation family business owner of Venus Jewelers, presented a class on entrepreneurship to the students of the School of Chemical Engineering on Dec. 6, 2017 at Rutgers University.  The presentation titled, "How to Market Yourself in Business and in Life" provided students the key elements required to succeed in any entrepreneurial endeavor, starting from interviewing, landing a fine position in the job market and becoming a leader in the corporate or private sector.

According to Dr. Stavrianidis’ research, three things really count in a skillful communicator – first, vocabulary or information, his ability to articulate, listen and communicate; second, his tone of voice; and third, his body language. Of these, the last counts most. Body language is more important than content, he said.

He also spoke about the importance of leadership and how our world today is thirsty for competent leaders. “Leadership is a learnable skill” Dr. Peter mentioned several times in his presentation and demonstrated some of the qualities and habits that make somebody a leader.
