Business leader David Campbell speaking at SBU

One of the better things about teaching at a University is that you constantly get new ideas and meet great people. This week we had David Campbell on campus. Who is David Campbell? From my announcement:
"Mr Campbell has also served as a member of the Board of Directors of Tektronix, M&T Bank, MRO Software, Gibraltar Industries, and PowerSteering software, and Niagara University and SUNY-Buffalo, as well as civic positions including Chairman of Roswell Park Cancer Institute Council, the Buffalo United Way campaign, and the Erie County IDA and Chamber.

Recognitions include an honorary doctorate from Niagara University, citizen of the year from The Buffalo News, and inclusion as a Fellow in the first year awards of the Purpose Prize.

He gave two lectures this week. The first which was aimed at the campus-wide audience focused on HODR, the benefits of volunteering, and the challenges of running a volunteer organization in challenging economic times. (The first speech is available on the BonaResponds blog.)

The second lecture was tailored to business students (and faculty!). He talks about the current economic problems (he thinks unemployment will go above 10%), governance, auditing, regulation, globalization, and what students (and others) can do to "wait out" the recession.

Both are very good. Thank you very much David! We really appreciate your visit!
