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.

The Amish Project

A stirring tribute to the strength of community and the power of forgiveness.

Praised by The New York Times as “extraordinary,” The Amish Project is a devastating and beautiful one-woman tour-de-force performance that compels us to question the paths we take at the crossroads of grief, rage, and clemency. Inspired by the 2006 school shootings in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania, this fictional account of a real-life tragedy allows us to glimpse into the world of Amish culture, and to come to grips with the true limits of compassion and forgiveness.

2015 Program: Taking It To The Next Level

Striving for success. Continuous process improvement. Taking it to the next level. These catch-phrases describe people or organizations pursuing a higher level of achievement. The commercial lending industry knows these expressions well! In our ‘more-better-faster’ world, standing pat is no longer an option.

It is in that vein that WBD is proud to announce that we will be taking our 2015 Seminar Series to the next level by incorporating a full-day of SBA program information at five of our seminar sites!

The “traditional” morning seminar — designed to meet the needs of bank executives, commercial lenders, accountants, attorneys, and economic development professionals — will provide a high-level overview of the latest program and general eligibility changes to SBA’s 504 and 7(a) programs, case study support of concepts, and updates on WBD affiliates, including our direct-lending efforts through the Lincoln Opportunity Fund.

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.

AGENDA
8:00-8:30 am - Networking & Continental Breakfast
8:30-11:30 am - Morning Seminar (with 15 minute break)
*1:00-4:00 pm - Afternoon Workshop (with 15 minute break).
