CURRENT

Programming is targeted at ages 21-40 but everyone is welcome to attend. UW-Green Bay has a Corporate Membership and encourages your participation.

UW-Green Bay employees and students pay the ‘member’ price (instead of the ‘nonmember’ price) when attending Current events. If you try to register online for a Current event, and the ‘nonmember’ price displays (instead of the ‘member’ price), please complete the online enrollment process at the following link. Even though UW-Green Bay is a corporate member, Current’s database detects price based on individual membership, so this step may be necessary for the ‘member’ pricing to display.

CURRENT: Lunch n’ Learn He Got a D in the Only College Busines Course He Ever Took

LnL_111715

He Got a D in the Only College Business Course He Ever Took Lunch n’ Learn presented by Tom Kunkel
Tuesday, November 17, 2015
11:00 AM to 1:00 PM

This event is coordinated and hosted by Current, the Greater Green Bay Chamber’s young professionals group targeting individuals age 21-40.

He Got a D in the Only College Business Course He Ever Took

When he was a college student himself majoring in political science, St. Norbert College President Tom Kunkel did his best to avoid business classes. On the lone occasion when he DID take one, well, you see from the headline what happened. Needless to say he never expected to be running anything more complicated than his checking account. But he went on to become a top newspaper executive and today administers one of the most respected liberal arts colleges in the Midwest.

Along the way, Kunkel learned a lot of management lessons from the School of Life Experience. He will share those with you, as well as discuss ways to make your organization matter in your community and why that’s especially important in a place like Green Bay, Wisconsin.

From 1993 to 1998, he held sales and marketing positions with Six Flags Theme Parks, a Time Warner company at the time.

EVENT OVERVIEW

Murder at the Juice Joint

This is a murder mystery experience designed for all guests to have active roles in the mystery and with each guest having objectives to complete. These objectives allow guests to draw their own conclusions as to the motives and the identity of the murderer. Before the night is through, everyone will have discovered that they have a motive for killing the victim and be inclined to protect their innocence as well as seek out the murderer.

A night of mystery and intrigue in the wild and romantic era of the roaring 20s.

With the passing of prohibition and organized crime on the rise, The Juice Joint, a swanky speakeasy run by Rosie Marie, has been nothing but jumping. To celebrate its success, Rosie is planning a party to remember at the exclusive nightspot and you are invited.

However, one of the names on the guest list is also on another’s hit list… and no one is safe from the consequences.

With the murder on the menu, you are certain to find a medley of individuals to make the night most memorable: from the major mobsters and their molls to the swanky singer with her hopes at Hollywood, the cigarette girl with a temper that sizzles to the crooked police chief with nothing to lose—no one is safe from murder but everyone will have a chance at solving it.

With the recipe for murder, The Juice Joint will be certain to be serving up a night of mayhem to remember.

Rules at The Juice Joint

Read Your Character Sheet: This will be sent to you prior to the event and contains your identity and all the information you will need to play the part.

Dress the Part: The more into the character you are the easier it will be for you to truly enjoy all the aspects of the night. In addition, it adds to the excitement, the photo opps and your chance to be voted best dressed.

Review Additional Information: Other information will be sent to you about the event along with your character profile. Watch your email!

ABOUR THE BRIX

The Brix is an unexpected private event space located in the basement of the Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley. With its old fashioned decor of brick flooring, tin ceiling, wood paneling and more, its the perfect space to reflect the wild and romantic era of the roaring 20s.
