Executive Round Table was founded in 1956 as an organization to promote the entrepreneurial spirit and develop outstanding leadership and character among its members. Since its founding, ERT has hosted many prominent keynote speakers, such as former Georgia Senator Sam Nunn and motion picture director Alfred Hitchcock.
Our membership includes the most well-rounded students that Georgia Tech has to offer, and major industry sponsors such as Suntrust, Equifax, and Alvarez & Marsal, to name a few.
Executive Round Table revolves around monthly dinner meetings. Each meeting begins with an informal social period allowing members and guests to mingle. Everyone is then seated, and dinner is served.
During dinner, a speaker gives a presentation on a topic of current significance that stimulates conversation in the "Round Table" environment. Topics have ranged from controversial current events to tales of personal success and discovery in one's field. The speaker then poses a question, allowing members time to discuss the topic of the evening at their table. Finally, a representative from each table is offered the opportunity to give a response to the group.
