17th January 2019

NEW ALBANY, Ind. – Thanks to a grant from the Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd County, IU Southeast’s School of Business will continue to host “Breakfast, Books & Business,” a breakfast series designed to educate small business owners, leaders and employees on the latest techniques in management, marketing, human resources and other key topics.

John Ross, assistant professor at the School of Business and organizer of the series presents the first lecture: “The Unity Principle: The Power Behind Teams.”

The next event, “Veterans, Why we Should Hire Them and How to Find Them,” will be presented by Trace Chesser, manager of the Career Transition program for USA Cares, on Thursday, Jan. 24 from 7:30-9 a.m. at the University Center North, room 127 on IU Southeast’s campus. Each attendee will receive a complimentary book, “Essential HR Handbook: A Quick and Handy Resource for Any Manager or HR Professional” by Barbara Mitchell and Sharon Armstrong.

Individuals who are involved in a small business are welcome to attend. Pre-registration is required. Participants can register for the events online. The events are free. However, donations are encouraged to help support the continuation of the series.

“Small businesses often lack resources for training,” said John Ross, assistant professor of management at the School of Business. “In looking for ways to serve small businesses, we wanted to offer a way to teach and train their owners, leaders and employees by utilizing our strengths to help them succeed. We want to make sure that the community sees IU Southeast as a viable resource for small businesses.”
