Event Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Titled “Economic Freedom of South Africa — The Contradictions,” the presentation is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 9, in Niemann Media Theater. The event is free to attend and open to the public.
Mr. Mashaba will take the audience on a journey of his life and career under apartheid and now in a democratic system. He founded the Black Like Me line of hair care products and built the company into a market leader, overcoming South African policies of strict racial segregation that minority white rulers enforced until the early 1990s.
Today he runs Lephatsi Investments, which invests in targeted sectors from real estate to bulletproof materials. Mr. Mashaba’s autobiography, “Black Like You,” was published in 2012.
From 2012 to 2014, he was chairman of South Africa’s Free Market Foundation. He stepped down from that role in May to join the Democratic Alliance, a growing opposition party in the nation’s political system.
Before Mr. Mashaba’s talk, the public is invited to a reception at 5:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served. The theater is located on the lower level of Hedberg Library at Carthage, 2001 Alford Park Drive.

Personal Branding: Taking Control of Your Reputation as a Leader

Event Date: Tuesday, February 10, 2015
Event Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Venue: Waukesha County Technical College
Description: Think branding is just for large corporations, marketing directors, and cows? Think again. Each one of us has a brand [a personal brand, how others see us] which is shaped by what we do, say, write, and otherwise present ourselves to others. As a leader, your personal brand impacts the perception of your organization – and it can make or break your effectiveness internally and externally.

We can’t fully control how others see us (smart, capable, compassionate, creative, fair). But many leaders don’t even try. That is, we don’t take a moment to think about how we WANT to be perceived, and then take a few simple steps to bolster that impression with purposeful action.

At this HNI University event, Larry Linne will share insights from his book Brand Aid as well as hands-on strategies for creating and protecting your personal brand. Using clear examples from business and family life, Larry will present essential advice for anyone who wants to succeed in today’s competitive and interconnected world.

This event is free to attend.

The ‘new-this-year’ afternoon workshop — designed to meet the needs of credit analysts, portfolio managers, credit administration, loan administration, SBA administration — will provide a more in-depth study of specific program eligibility, underwriting, structuring, closing, funding, & servicing rules and regulations related to SBA’s 504 and 7(a) programs. This workshop will complement the Morning Seminar material with little or no repetition.
