Sparty, Izzo, and Restaurateurs

“Thin Business Sparty” is traveling the world with Broad College students, faculty, staff, and alumni as they pursue study abroad, research, and other means of making business happen globally. Follow his travels here. Going on a trip yourself? Recruit your own Thin Business Sparty.


Sparty visited the Michigan Restaurant Show at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi and saw Coach Izzo deliver the keynote address. Izzo offered his advice on team building, recruiting, handling stress, and how to work with a diverse group of people in the professional world. Here they are with alumni board members from The School of Hospitality Business Kevin Swanquist (BA ’08) and Ben Schwartz (BA ’72).
