QUINCY, MA – BlumShapiro, the largest regional business advisory firm based in New England with offices in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, provided leadership development workshops and exercises during its “Dare to Lead” summer program for 22 college students from Massachusetts entering their junior year.

The two-day event was held July 11-12, 2017 at BlumShapiro’s offices in Quincy. Participating students attend UMass, Bentley University, Bryant University, Stonehill College and other higher education institutions.

“Dare to Lead allows us to share our leadership expectations and skills with the next generation workforce,” said Brian A. Renstrom, managing partner Massachusetts.  “The program also provides us with insights into those students who may become future employees of the firm.”

Dare to Lead focuses on networking, teambuilding and leadership skills and includes various activities and interaction with BlumShapiro staff. The workshops, including one titled, “Introduction to Innovative Leadership,” were hosted by BlumShapiro partners and managers. Students were also joined by BlumShapiro summer interns who served as “buddies” for the two-day event.

During the second day of the program, the Dare to Lead students and BlumShapiro interns performed community service at Cardinal Cushing Centers.

Following the program, the top students are extended an offer for an internship based on employee feedback throughout the two days.

“We hope to continue using the program to help build future leaders in our community as well as help the firm identify top talent and eventually bring them aboard as full-time staff,” said Renstrom.
