PUBLIC INVITED TO "BROWN BAG" BUSINESS-ETHICS LECTURES
LA CROSSE, Wis.—Enron….Global Crossing….tired of hearing about business practices only when they go bad? Viterbo University will be offering an
alternative—a series of Brown Bag Lectures focusing on leaders and the successes of good business practices that are taking place in our communities.
La Crosse Chief of Police Ed Kondracki and La Crosse Public School Superintendent Tom Downs will discuss "The Seven Habits of Effective Leaders" Wednesday, Nov. 6 at noon in the Fine Arts Center Lobby. City Brewery President Randy Smith will speak Wednesday, Dec. 4 on "Building Business for the Long Haul," at the same time and location as the previous lecture.
The presentations are free and reservations are not required. (Bring your own lunch.) Jointly sponsored by Viterbo’s D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics and
Leadership and the Dahl School of Business, the series features speakers who are known in the community for "doing things right," said Rick Kyte, an ethics professor at Viterbo.
"The series will give people the opportunity to engage in a discussion about how to adopt ethical practices in their own places of work. It also is an opportunity for our students to see for themselves the practical emphasis that many respected business leaders place on ethics," Kyte said.
Two additional Brown Bag Lectures will be scheduled for second semester and the presenters will be announced once dates and other arrangements are finalized.
