The Seven R’s of Leadership and Life

Angelo Valletta

President and CEO

Ben Franklin Technology Partners of NEPA

Angelo is the author of a new book, The Seven R’s of Leadership and Life, coming out this Fall. Can you guess what they are?  Angelo will speak to his personal mission to bring the seven R’s to every business and personal interaction.

Angelo is the President and CEO of Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern PA. In his role, Angelo has the opportunity to interact with NEPA “leadership innovation” on a regular basis and he will share his observations as seen through a new lens.
