Son of Zig: Tom Ziglar visits campus this month

Tom Ziglar, personal development and leadership expert and the son of one of the world’s top motivational speakers, the late Zig Ziglar, visits Youngstown State University 2 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24, in the Williamson College of Business Administration auditorium, 221 North Hazel Street.

The presentation, sponsored by the YSU Cliffe College of Creative Arts and Communication’s Department of Communication and the Williamson College of Business Administration, is free and open to the public.
