Orlando, Fla. – February 2, 2010 – Best-selling author, Nick Nanton, Esq., The Celebrity Lawyer and co-founder of the Celebrity Branding Agency®, a Media, Marketing, PR & Business Development agency, is preparing a series of guest lectures at the University of Central Florida. Nick has been asked to speak as part of ART 3945 BFA Seminar (Bachelor of Fine Art) course. This course is the professional exit orientation class for all majors completing the BFA degree.
Professor Robert Reedy said, “I asked Nick to join the staff in order to bring a ‘real world’ view point to the topics of professional self promotion, branding and communication…not to mention some of the legal and contractual issues regarding their art work.”
“Many universities never prepare their students for entrance into an art world that is immersed in business and self-promotion on a daily basis. Students who are not prepared to handle these issues, while remembering it is their art work that is always their main priority, will surely fail in the pursuit of their chosen profession. It’s almost guaranteed,” Reedy continued.
The UCF Department of Art and Digital Media have recently merged into one School of Visual Art and Design. This merger has created a new school of approximately 1,200 majors making them one of the largest visual art schools in the country.
“It is important for students to realize there is a huge adjustment between the protected and often closed environment of a university education and the real world of art. Nick’s presence will help us create a new paradigm for these students,” remarked Reedy.
Nick’s best-selling book, “Celebrity Branding You®: a Revolutionary System for Entrepreneurs and Professionals to Become the Go-To Expert, Dominate Your Field and Eliminate the Competition,” co-written with personal branding expert, JW Dicks, Esq., has been assigned as the course textbook.
