Houston, Texas (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
Texas entrepreneur, Iscential CEO, and past member of Texas A&M’s famed 12th Man Kickoff team, Warren Barhorst, will speak to students and staff as part of Wofford College’s Executive Speaker Series. A successful businessman in the insurance and risk management industry, Barhorst will focus on the personal characteristics of a successful entrepreneur.
“You only have to be just a little bit better than your competition, and you can start taking market share,” Barhorst says. “That was my belief when I started out, and it’s my belief today.”
Barhorst is the founder and CEO of Iscential (formerly the Barhorst Insurance Group), a Texas-based risk management and insurance firm. In 20 years, Iscential has grown from zero clients to more than 60,000 lines in force, from two employees to over 100 employees, and from one location in Jersey Village to 24 across the state of Texas. Barhorst’s passion for educating and mentoring frequently has him presenting from coast to coast: from fourth-grade classrooms to executive boardrooms, he is driven to educate others about how to make wise choices that will positively impact their financial future. In 2008, Barhorst penned a book on entrepreneurship titled ‘Game Plan: The Definitive Playbook for Starting or Growing Your Business’. In it, he delves into the power of dreaming and working toward fulfilling those dreams.
Sponsored by The Space, the Executive Speaker Series brings successful business people, entrepreneurs, and community leaders to campus during the Institute, as well as monthly during the academic semesters, to talk about leadership and professional development.
Barhorst will speak for 30 minutes and host a Q&A session immediately following.
