Tuesday Speakers Register

Memorial Hall

You are surrounded by people whose daily decisions impact results you are counting on. On the flip side, many are counting on the decisions you make in business...and life. Breakthrough research into understanding how our "inner entrepreneur" works sheds light on how we make decisions in business environments - and it has very little to do with our personality traits!  Joe Abraham, author and founder of BOSI Global, who has been featured twice on the TEDx stage, will present an insightful talk packed with real-life stories and case studies to lead you to a deeper understanding of your pre-wired tendencies in business - as well as a methodology of how to identify the entrepreneurial DNA of those surrounding you.

Rob Henken - Marijuana in Milwaukee

Tuesday Speakers Register

Memorial Hall

Rotarian Rob Henken will present the Public Policy Forum's recent report on municipal marijuana policy. The report finds that few Milwaukeeans who are cited for first-time, small-scale marijuana possession spend time behind bars for failure to pay fines, though jail time for subsequent offenses is much more common. It also explores ways that other big cities have changed their marijuana laws, which offer a range of potential options for local policymakers. Henken also will discuss the Forum’s follow-up research, which is digging deeper into justice system data to provide greater insight into the impacts of Milwaukee's existing marijuana legal paradigm.
