O’Donnell to lead Visiting Exec Seminar March 28

Huntington University's Visiting Executive Seminar is designed to link business professionals with Huntington's next generation of business students as they discuss relevant business topics in today's economy.

On March 28, business professionals are invited to join students for a seminar on business issues that have a direct personal and economic effect on people's everyday lives. The seminar will take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon on the upper level of the Habecker Dining Commons.

Leading the seminar will be Jim O'Donnell, executive-in-residence, emeritus standing, as well as Troy Irick, assistant professor of business.

The seminar will review two articles. The first is from a book review by Harvard Business School Professor Clayton Christensen. The review gives an overview of the main points of his book, "How Will You Measure Your Life."

The second piece article will be a blog post by Bob Lupton, community organizer for the poor in Atlanta. Lupton authored the book "Toxic Charity," which O'Donnell describes as a masterful book. The blog post will highlight one of the issues covered in the book, which is if churches and charities hurt those they support, and if so, how to reverse that effect.

Attendees are invited for a continental breakfast at 8:30 a.m. and then to stay for a fellowship time over lunch following the program.
Attendance is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. Please RSVP to Linda Schmitz at 359-4042 or at lschmitz@huntington.edu.
