The lecture, titled “Self-Leadership: The Power of Self Talk,” is scheduled April 17, at 7 p.m., in the Student Union Grand Ballroom on the third floor. The presentation is free and open to the public.

Dean of the College of Business Antoinette Phillips said this year’s lecture is presented in memory of John O. Batson, who established the Business Ethics lecture series in 1984.

“The programmatic ancestor of the Business Lecture was the Ethics Lecture - for many years the Livingston Ethics Lecture. John passed away this year and we gratefully celebrate his family’s commitment to seeing that his history with the lecture series is honored,” she said. “For this year’s lecture, Dr. Christopher Neck’s dynamic style and his topic promise to be engaging for students, faculty, staff, and guests.”
