NSU Speaker’s Forum Hosted by Dr. Larry A. Calderon, Aug. 6

Ken Ma, M.B.A.

Ken Ma, M.B.A., associate director of public affairs at NSU, will be the featured speaker at the NSU Speaker’s Forum on Friday, Aug. 6. He will talk about how to effectively use NSU’s Office of Public Affairs and understanding media relations.

He provides public relations support for NSU’s Research and Technology Transfer, Oceanographic Center, Health Care Centers, and the Health Professions Division. Ma conducts media training for his clients, offers marketing support, helps clients with strategic planning, serves as media liaison and photographer, holds the position of managing editor of NSU’s Wellness magazine, Wellness Made Simple, and serves as a contributing writer for NSU’s premiere magazine, Horizons. He recently managed the international media during the Dalai Lama’s February 2010 visit to NSU.

Prior to joining NSU, Ma was a social services and minority affairs reporter at the Orlando Sentinel, where he was a part of several reporting teams that covered NASA’s first space shuttle launch after the Columbia shuttle tragedy; the Terri Schiavo story in Tampa Bay; and the destructive Central Florida tornadoes of 2007. Previously, Ma covered politics, government, education and public safety at several Southern California newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times. Prior to that, Ma interned at The Chronicle of Higher Education in Washington, D.C., where he wrote stories about the U.S. Department of Education and congressional legislation relating to higher education. Ma holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of Hawaii and an M.B.A. from NSU’s H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship.

The weekly NSU Speaker’s Forum is sponsored by Larry Calderon, Ed.D., NSU’s vice president for community and governmental affairs. Taking place each Friday from 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m., in the Boardroom of the Horvitz Administration Building, these forums allow speakers from the university to present on a vast array of topics, including their latest programs, research, campus activities and more. The forum includes breakfast as well as a question and answer session at the conclusion of the presentation.
