Triton College’s School of Business presents its new Executive Series, which will feature inspiring guest speakers working in the business industry who will share their success stories as well as provide tips on how to compete in the global workforce.

Dr. Terri Lonier, executive director of DePaul University’s Coleman Entrepreneurship Center, will serve as the first speaker of the series from 9 to 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6, in Room B-130 of the Student Center (B Building).

Prior to joining DePaul, she led the strategy consulting firm, Working Solo Inc., and served as an advisor to Fortune 100 and high-tech firms such as Apple, Microsoft, Toshiba, H-P, Bank of America, and Visa USA. She received her Ph.D. from New York University in Business History.

Dr. Lonier was appointed the executive director of the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center in late 2012 and also serves DePaul as a clinical professor of management.

The Coleman Entrepreneurship Center was established in 2003 with support from The Coleman Foundation to encourage the study and successful practice of entrepreneurship in its connection to a community of practicing entrepreneurs. The mission of the center is to equip students and entrepreneurs with the knowledge and skills to awaken their entrepreneurial spirit, explore opportunities, launch and grow ventures, and make successful transitions.

The Executive Series is intended to inspire and encourage individuals to think about academic and career paths that can help prepare them to compete in the global workforce.
