DAYTONA BEACH – The L. Gale Lemerand Entrepreneurial Speaker Series kicks off a busy day of activities on Daytona State College’s Daytona Beach campus on March 27, followed by the annual spring job fair where more than 100 businesses from a variety of industries will be on hand seeking to fill vacancies.
Presented in partnership with the Small Business Development Center, the featured speaker for the spring presentation is Charles Clark, a world-class athlete, international keynote speaker, writer, success coach, business consultant and entrepreneur and CEO of the business consulting firm Charles Clark International.

He has provided over 500 event presentations over nine years for companies including Frontier Communications Corporation, Dicks Sporting Goods, Nike, iHeart Radio, Raymond James Financial, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and NCAA college sports teams.
“The event is free and open to the public, plus we’re expecting large delegations from both Volusia and Flagler county high schools,” states Jim Deering, director of the Small Business Development Center. “Charles’ presentation combined with scholarship awards should make for a stimulating morning.”
The event starts promptly at 9:30 a.m. in the Mori Hosseini Center (building 1200) on the college’s Daytona Beach campus, 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd.
