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.
