John is a member of my advisory board, and my “go-to” person when it comes to offering insight into the content of our new media courses in the Communications Management major. He also serves as an evaluator in the students’ final course, where they are tasked in creating a brand and promotional communications/marketing plan for themselves or their entrepreneurial venture. His enthusiasm, experience, and knowledge of internet marketing and branding has been a vital part of the feedback process for the students, who value his input. I have come to count on John’s insight to provide creative ideas and solutions for students.
Program Director, Communications Management
John has volunteered to speak on multiple occasions to our MBA class about sustaining and maintaining an entrepreneurship. Many small businesses have a short life span, so Rockford University is working to resolve this problem and I am teaching that course. In being comprehensive, I have asked people to come in to speak to the class, and Mr. John LiCausi has graciously volunteered his time and energy to talk about the importance of the internet and the e-environment in not just maintaining an entrepreneurship, but also in growing it both nationally and internationally. His extensive experience in this field gives him numerous examples to use to warn, encourage, and spark interest in the e-environment. His willingness to engage with our students is a clear indication of his openness to sharing knowledge and working with those who want to succeed. John is an entrepreneur who is successful not only because of his knowledge, but also because he has an outgoing and friendly personality. He is a true demonstration of how to grow your business in today’s increasingly social networked environment.
