DePaul University’s Colemam Entrepeneur Center hosted a business symposium entitled “Breakthroughs”. Held at the Metropolitan Club in Chicago, October 28, invited speakers presented a 20-minute experience share.
Resicom CEO, John Fairclough joined a group of 18 accomplished business owners and industry leaders. All speakers shared personal stories of a time when they had their back to the wall, and how their response to the situation propelled either a personal or professional breakthrough/ achievement.
“It was great to hear the other presenters come up and make themselves vulnerable by sharing their stories,” said Fairclough of the event. “The ones that spoke most to me were those where I related to the struggles. People shared their loneliness, fears, and the obstacles they faced. I learned many things.”
Fairclough recently published a similar account entitled “The Moment I Thought We Might Not Make It” as part of a collection of entrepreneur stories for Sometimes You Have to Look Over the Edge and Not Blink featured on About.com. Fairclough is the founder and president of Resicom, a national facility maintenance provider that believes in the bold pursuit of what normal should be.
