In January 2014, CUP (Council of Urban Professionals) launched a mini-series called “CUP Conversations,” where industry trailblazers answer questions about their lessons on leadership. CUP’s fourth video highlights Don Liu, General Counsel, Secretary & Vice President at Xerox. Don shares his take on the importance of making mistakes, role models, and reputation. AABANY is fortunate to have Don’s sage advice as a member of our Advisory Committee.
