Randi Zuckerberg appears as second guest for UB Distinguished Speaker Series
Randi Zuckerberg wanted to sing on Broadway.
Little did she know that she would move on to become one of the most successful female entrepreneurs with a hand in the development of Facebook, her own production company and an author of three books.

Zuckerberg spoke at the Distinguished Speaker Series Wednesday night at Alumni Arena. The businesswoman spoke about her experience with Facebook, the mobile workplace and how technology has become a staple in people’s lives to a fault.
