Calvin Business Partners Award Luncheon

On Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2015, Calvin College hosted its annual Calvin Business Partners Awards Luncheon to honor businesses and individuals that had partnered with the college’s business program to create outstanding learning opportunities for students. Traditionally, the event engages the broader community in discussion about a topic of interest through a keynote address.

This year’s keynote speaker was Tracy Brower, author of Bring Work to Life by Bringing Life to Work and the global vice president of workplace vitality at Mars Drinks. Brower is an expert in organizational effectiveness and the sociology of work; how people impact their work-life, and how their work-life affects them. Watch her address below:
