 Dear Mohammad:

After watching your actions and the responses to them first-hand, I realize that you don't need our compliments.  Nonetheless, we can't help but express our views.

 

Over the years, I have attended a lot of conferences and meetings.  But I must tell you that yours is one of a kind. Things were first-rate: the people, the presentations, food and lodging and the general help. You have the right focus: the students.  After all, it's all about them.  You have a way of finding talents.  Their enthusiasm and desire and their presentations warmed my feelings. It's heartening to see how much reputation and goodwill you have earned.  On an individual level, one can buy loyalty, but one can't buy goodwill.  We were also amazed by the sharpness of your mind:  You remember everybody’s names and positions. I appreciate how much you are doing to advance education and to shape young minds.

Dr. Bhuiyan.

I must say that the Innovation and Entrepreneurship program for HBCUs was the most intellectually, academically beneficial, and relevant conference I have ever attended in my 35+ years in higher education, including over 25 years in business schools.  The sessions in innovation commercialization were especially interesting, and the conversations I had with business and military leaders were extremely stimulating.  As the conference progressed, I could see the minds and imaginations of my students expanding. 

 

I am especially impressed with the way the conference was handled, with respect and politeness at all times, while keeping everyone involved in as many activities as possible. While the Alcorn team did not make it to the second round, the feedback from the judges was very helpful and right on target.  The students and I benefited greatly from the competition and the advice.

 

I am still recovering for the outstanding experience that you provided to all of us.

 

Thank you!

Kimball P. Marshall, Ph.D., Faculty Advisor, Alcorn State University

Dear Dr. Bhuiyan,
On behalf of our students and faculty advisors, I want to express my sincere appreciation for giving us this wonderful opportunity.  This was the first visit for our team, and they were impressed with all aspects of the conference - the set-up, hotel, meals, and above all the professionalism that was demonstrated by you and your entire team.  I believe that we all learned a great deal by participating in the Business Plan Competition and we are confident that next year we will be much stronger.
Please let me know when you visit New Orleans next time - I would love to meet with you.
