Kiser, O’Donnell lead local seminar on working through hard times of recession

Huntington, Ind.— Huntington College’s next Visiting Executive Seminar (VES) will be held on Thursday, April 11, from 8:30 a.m., to noon, in the upper level of the Habecker Dining Commons, with lunch following. Ned Kiser, vice president for advancement at Huntington College, and Jim O’Donnell, executive-in-residence at Huntington College, will lead the discussions at the seminar.

The seminar will focus on special challenges and opportunities of working in and through the hard times of recession. Discussions will be centered on two articles, “Remote Impact: How September 11 Upended The Life and Work of One Entrepreneur” and “Hanging On: A Factory Manager Improvises to Save Jobs in a Downturn.”

“The VES program is an attempt to integrate the faith and learning of our students and the faith and behavior of practicing business people,” said O’Donnell. “Few events force us to show what we really believe in more than do crises, and especially crises that threaten our jobs or financial security. Both of these articles engage those issues of what is really important to us.”

To reserve your place at this Visiting Executive Seminar, please call or e-mail Laura Ballard in the EXCEL Program office at (260) 359-4126 or by April 5.
