Mr. Runde speaking at Marquette University
On Tuesday, February 21, 2017, Mr. Jim Runde visited the AIM program - he later delivered a speech to over 75 Marquette students in Sensenbrenner Hall. A book signing and reception followed.

During his lecture, Mr. Runde discussed 'emotional intelligence' which is the theme of his new book, Unequaled.

[Note: James Runde became America's longest-serving investment banker at a single institution in May 2014 by celebrating forty years at Morgan Stanley. He is corporate director specializing in strategic and financial advice, best known for his role in advising the United Parcel Service on its IPO in 1999. Mr. Runde continues to be involved with his alma mater, and in 2000 he was elected to the Board of Trustees of Marquette University.]

The Marquette students appreciated Mr. Runde's insights. He offered tips and talked about the secrets to career success in the financial industry. In short, he emphasized that EQ is needed to succeed and get ahead!

Unequaled can be described as the client service professional's guide to getting ahead and achieving professional goals. As Mr. Runde stated, "Most young professionals are smart and hard working, but guess what—so is everyone else. So how do you stand out? You need to distinguish yourself in order to get ahead, but simply being good at your job is not enough. Moving up is about soft skills, networking, client connections, emotional intelligence, and your personal reputation." 
His book is a frank and candid guide to what it really takes to succeed in the field of finance. It is packed with insights, stories, and actionable tips based on the author's 40 years at Morgan Stanley, one of the world's most respected investment banks. The book can help the young professional learn how to lead, when to follow, and how to build the reputation you need to get ahead in a competitive field.
