New Lectures in Entrepreneurship Series is Free and Open to All
Seventeen prominent business leaders will visit the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business over the next four months as part of the new Lectures in Entrepreneurship speakers series.
The new weekly lecture series is open to the public free of charge and will take place in the Orson A. Christensen Auditorium in the George S. Eccles Business Building in Room 215 at 7 p.m. every Wednesday, according to Mike Glauser, executive director of Entrepreneurial Programs at the Huntsman School of Business.
“The series will give students and community members the opportunity to learn important business concepts from highly successful entrepreneurs,” Mike said. “Each entrepreneur will tell his or her story and then answer questions from the audience. Those who attend will discover many keys to success in new venture creation.”
The first lecture is Jan. 18 and will feature Tanner Bell, Ken Jacquin and Chris Infurchia of Ragnar Events, a firm that sponsors the Ragnar Relay Wasatch Back. That relay has become the largest overnight running relay event in the world.
A week later, on Jan. 25, Scott Huskinson and Clay Broadbent, cofounders of iFrogz, will speak. iFrogz designs, manufactures, and distributes protective cases, headphones, ear buds, and other accessories for smartphones, tablets, and mobile devices. Their lecture will coincide with the formal opening of the Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence.
Other featured speakers include Scott Walker, the founder and chairman of ProCore Laboratories, and Mark Holland, chairman and CEO of Intermountain Staff and Ascent HR Solutions. Bill Child, the leader who guided RC Willey Home Furnishings to where it is today, is also coming to speak.
