Ben Cikanek, a mentor in the Feliciano School of Business Accelerated MBA mentorship program and Managing Director of Firework Labs, extended an invitation to MBA student Jasmine Floran to participate in a conference with his team, dedicated to training HR leaders.

The event convened 100 members of a burgeoning HR team, emphasizing the launch and establishment of alignment within the new group.

“I wish to express my gratitude to Ben and his highly skilled team for this incredible opportunity. The event proved to be both inspiring and enlightening. Engaging in the behind-the-scenes operations provided me with hands-on experience and a profound understanding of what it takes to plan and facilitate a successful event of this magnitude. The experience also afforded me invaluable insights and fresh perspectives on key aspects of professional development, effective team-building, and the significance of fostering collaboration across various Human Resource functions. Overall, it was a tremendous learning opportunity for me,” said Jasmine Floran.
