Reiman Speaker Series

The Reiman Entrepreneurial Speaker Series was established through a generous gift from Roy and Bobbi Reiman of Greendale, Wisconsin. The lecture series features an entrepreneurial guest who spends time at Iowa State University meeting with students, faculty, and business leaders. The guest speaker also gives a community lecture on campus.

The 2016 Spring speaker will be Craig Culver.  April 11th from 11:30-1:00PM.

Craig photoJoin us for this spring’s Reiman Speaker Series and luncheon with Craig Culver as he shares The Culver’s Story.  Craig Culver and the restaurant chain bearing his last name is truly a Wisconsin success story now spanning across 22 states.  But, it wasn’t always that way.  Hear Craig as he talks about the early years when too few cars were in the parking lot and there were too many doubts as to whether the little restaurant was going to survive the tough competitive landscape.  Through faith, unwavering determination and a can-do attitude, Culver’s single restaurant turned into a growing franchise.  In fact, today, there are nearly 600 locations.  Join the conversation with Craig as he shares Culver’s recipes for success, the home runs they hit over the years and the obstacles that had to be overcome.

The Culver’s story will enlighten and motivate you to be a more intentional and thoughtful leader–and you’re sure to leave with a smile on your face!

Lunch will be provided buffet-style from ISU Dining.  Registration is required for the event.

11:30AM-Sun Room is open, food ready to be served.

12:00-1:00PM-Craig Culver’s talk, followed by public Q&A.
