Mandy Antoniacci, writer of “ChangeUp” sports business column for Inc. Magazine and advocate for social change will present “How to Throw a ChangeUp,” at The University of Scranton Saturday, Sept. 12. She will discuss entrepreneurship, leadership and promoting social good to students and area residents.

In her Inc. Magazine column, Antoniacci profiles team owners, coaches, players and entrepreneurs who stand for positive change.

“From a professional athlete with an audience of millions, to a college student on a campus of thousands, everyone’s story has the ability to positively affect our culture. The question to ask yourself is ‘what story will you tell?’” Antoniacci said.

A University of Scranton graduate, Antoniacci was one of the youngest executive vice presidents in the advertising industry.
