DALLAS, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LegalShield, one of the nation's leading providers of legal safeguards for individuals, families and small businesses, announced today that its Chief Executive Officer, Rip Mason, will give a presentation at UCLA's Anderson School of Management on April 29. The presentation will focus on LegalShield's relevance in the industry, business model and history. Mason will also address the importance of community involvement for every business, highlighting the company's new Military Outreach program designed to create new business opportunities for reservists and provide donations to Disabled American Veterans.
"The molding and shaping of business leaders starts well before they assume a leadership position," said Mason. "I'm honored that Mayor Riordan selected me to be a part of his speaker series. It is a testament to all the great work our executive leaders, partners and associates do each day on behalf of our customers and the positive effect they have on the community."

The course is designed to expose students to different leadership methods and theories they can adopt as they move forward in their careers. A key component of the course is the speaker series, which features 26 national business leaders.
