HOUSTON, April 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — alliantgroup Director and Former Alabama Governor Bob Riley addressed students at the University of Alabama’s Ferguson Center yesterday on the topic of leadership and civic engagement. During his keynote address given to over 250 people, Riley (a University of Alabama alum) discussed his time at the university and how his personal experiences there ultimately shaped his career as a leader in public life.

During his address, Riley emphasized the hard lessons that he learned regarding the importance of leadership while attending the university and encouraged those in attendance to pursue their passions and be leaders as they begin their respective careers. Whether it be running a business or a life devoted to public service, Riley encouraged those in attendance to always lead and to choose careers that will make a real difference in improving the world around them and in supporting their local communities.
