Paying it forward with an internship

We want dedicated teachers and we want graduates to be prepared with the skills they need to succeed in business. Here’s your opportunity, then, to help a dedicated teacher prepare those very students for your industry! At our recent business expo, I was pleased to meet two business students from La Follette High School whom IB had comped for all activities throughout the day. We enjoyed hosting delightful young people with an interest and enthusiasm for area business.

Looking for a spooktacular idea for an office party this year? Or a new twist for your holiday party in the coming months? Shirley and I put our heads together at IB, and here’s what we’re hosting on Halloween for staff – it’s quick, it’s inexpensive, and most important, we expect everyone will have fun.

A dash of Henck, touch of Breuer, and a pinch of Blaska? Welcome to the IB Expo!

This is probably your last reminder for the IB Expo tomorrow, Wednesday, Oct. 17, when WIBA radio’s Mitch Henck will be broadcasting his morning talk show on-site from 8 to 11. Stop by Booth 100 to meet him when the trade floor doors open at 10 a.m., and weigh in on how you feel about his “Outside the Box” commentaries!

Is there an award for ‘not-so-improved’?

Is there an award for ‘not-so-improved’?

I’ll be excited to learn, right alongside the rest of our IB Expo audience on Oct. 17, just who won the “Fittest Executive” and the “Most Improved Executive” awards for physical fitness. Though several fitness awards will be given by IB at the expo next Wednesday, I won’t take one home. I did not lose a single pound during the competition phase.
