On Campus Workshop: How to Get the Most from Your Internship


Our final workshop of the Fall 2012 semester was held on November 12 at the Kelly Center. Thanks so much to all of the students, alumni and faculty/staff members who attended the event. And a BIG thank you to Paul Turner – our very special guest speaker!

Paul is the Director of Event Operations and Security for the Dallas Cowboys and Cowboys Stadium. He oversees event management, event staffing, guest services, security, police, fire and medical services for all events at Cowboys Stadium. In his 24 years in the public assembly facilities industry, Paul has developed and led numerous customer and event services operations in performing arts centers, arenas and stadiums. He has previously worked for the Philadelphia Eagles, Portland Trailblazers, Theater Projects Consultants and the City of Cerritos, California. Paul is the co-chair of the Stadiums Committee for the International Association of Venue Managers and is on the Advisory Board for the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety & Security. He has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Speech Communication from California State University, Long Beach. We couldn’t think of anyone else we would rather have present this workshop. He did such a fantastic job!
