Mort Mandel, the Palm Beach self-made billionaire, entrepreneur and international philanthropist who, along with his brothers Jack and Joseph, founded Premier Industrial Corp., one of the more successful companies in the history of the New York Stock Exchange, will be the keynote speaker for the Mandel JCC’s Business Author Event on Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. at the Mandel JCC in Palm Beach Gardens. He is also the namesake of the Mandel JCC of the Palm Beaches, the agency that runs locations in Palm Beach Gardens and Boynton Beach.
Mr. Mandel will discuss his book, It’s All About Who You Hire, How they Lead,...And Other Essential Advice from a Self-Made Leader. The event is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served. Seating is limited and registration is required.
With his mind, his heart and his hands, Mort Mandel has created an enormously successful life. What does it take to build an enduring company from the ground up? What does it take to transform a social enterprise into a high performing organization? What does it take to live a life that really matters? The answers to these questions can be found in It’s All About Who, the story of a man and the practices that have allowed him to craft a life of great significance. Mandel’s dedication and commitment to non-profits is equally remarkable. Recent evidence of his generosity can be seen in his significant gifts to the Mandel JCC of the Palm Beaches and the Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach.
It’s All About Who explains that whether you want to earn more money or change the world, getting the best possible people into key roles is critical. Mandel shows how improving the quality of leadership can lead to success. He illustrates how a commitment to values and the pursuit of excellence can deliver as much impact in the social service world as in the corporate world. Throughout his unprecedented and fascinating American success story, Mandel underscores his fundamental belief that a life without meaning, purpose and commitment isn’t a life at all.
