Full text of the keynote address given at the St. Louis American's Salute to Business 2010
August marked the beginning of Webster University's 2010-11 academic year. Incoming freshman, returning upper classman and new students of all ages came on campus to learn more about being a Gorlok! That included meeting the faculty and staff of the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology and learning from Dean Benjamin Akande how to "take center stage".
14.6 million Americans remain out of work this week and within that group 6.6 million have been unemployed six months or longer. The numbers are daunting. But for those looking for that next job or future career, now is not the time to sit on the bench. As Dean Akande explained to The GoNetwork at St. Patrick Center, you have to be ready when call comes in to take the field.
The 2010 Erik L. Bond '77 Lecture at MICDS commemorating Black History Month was held on February 17th and 18th, in Danforth Chapel on the MICDS campus. This year's speaker was Benjamin Ola Akande, Ph.D., Dean of the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology at Webster University.
