Change to Speaker Line-Up Announced for Business Forum Day Feb. 5

A scheduling conflict has caused a change in the keynote speaker for Colorado State University’s seventh annual Business Forum Day Feb. 5.

Donald Hudler, CEO and president of Saturn Corp., initially was scheduled to be keynote speaker at the campus event. Because of scheduling conflicts, the keynote presentation will be made by Hudler’s vice president for corporate communications, Jim Farmer.

Farmer’s presentation will outline the strategies and issues that helped make Saturn Corp. an industry leader in car manufacturing. The company recently received the highest rating for customer service and sales satisfaction among all car companies and began shipping products to Japan and other international markets.

The schedule for the remainder of the forum is the same and features panel discussions on electronic commerce, the growth of international markets for United States agricultural products, venture capital and the impact of technology on the way people work and live.

The event runs from 9 a.m.-5:15 p.m. in the East and Middle Ballrooms of the Lory Student Center and is free and open to the public. The deadline to purchase tickets for the luncheon is Jan. 21; tickets are $10 each.

The forum is sponsored by the Graduate Business Council and the College of Business. To purchase tickets or for more information about the event, call (970) 491-2994.
