On May 24th, the new Graduate Business NetImpact Chapter organized a professional development event titled "Leadership, Ethics and Entrepreneurship: Strategic Mindset for the 21st Century". The event featured Lauren Speeth, CEO of Elfenworks. Lauren reviewed the topics of what is to be a leader, ethics, entrepreneurship and to have joy. She metaphorically spoke about "following your true north when sailing. It is always best to follow your true north in practice and perspective. To perfect what you practice and make small shifts that will encompass big changes."
Speeth noted that one of the most important aspects that world needs is to have a surplus of joy in both your skills and affinities. Lauren was an alluring speaker that seemed to inspire everyone to start to follow their true north.
MBA student Mercedes Baumbach enjoyed the event because Lauren was "an inspirational Lasallian leader, not just wanting to do good for the world, but acting as a true philanthropist." Joshua Brown, a current MBA student said Lauren is "passionate, a believer in her vision, and someone to be forever searching for education and people who share her thoughts."
