About the Speaker

Neil Halloran

Neil Halloran

Neil Halloran, the founder, and president of a consulting firm, Halloran & Associates, has an extensive background in sales, marketing and education. Previously, he worked for IBM for 20 years and was the director of corporate and executive training at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. While at IBM, Mr. Halloran managed IBM’s Advanced Business Institute and worked with senior IBM executives on implementing innovative leadership curricula. He has been recognized by Forbes and Business Management magazines for his accomplishments in training and consulting.

At Adelphi, Mr. Halloran said his main goal is to “tailor the course curricula for [students] to develop their skills as well as enable current professionals to compete in the private and public sectors of business.”Mr. Halloran reviews and adjusts students’ résumés to cater to specific jobs, and provides students with the latest state-of-the-art job search strategies. In 2010, he piloted a business simulation project in the graduate business course, Developing World Class Human Resources, enabling each student to participate in a real-world scenario. He has held many management and developmental workshops, including a team-building seminar for resident assistants, a leadership workshop for hall directors and an introduction to leadership class for Adelphi’s 2011 Leadership Certificate Program. Student Tiffany DeMillio said, “I left his class feeling more experienced…and better able to handle life and work situations.”
