Rogow Distinguished Visiting Lecturer Series Presents: Jesse Cole

Stop Standing Still, Start Standing Out.

Jesse Cole, founder of Fans First Entertainment and owner of the Savannah Bananas, will be speaking at UHart as a part of the Rogow Distinguished Lecturer Series, on Tuesday, March 5 at 5:30 p.m. in the Chase Arena.

If you've heard of the Savannah Bananas, you're likely already aware that Cole is no stranger to standing out, always clad in his yellow top hat and tuxedo. The Bananas have recently taken the world by storm, selling out games across the country due to their entertaining and eclectic style.

Cole's lecture, "Stop Standing Still, Start Standing Out", will inspire you to do just that! Speaking on his life experience and what he has learned throughout his career, Cole will leave you with plenty of inspiring words and ways to find success in everything you do. 

The Rogow Distinguished Visiting Lecturer Series works to bring celebrated authors, journalists, historians, academics, and artists to the Greater Hartford area.
