Marquette University’s Marketing Club will host guest speaker Tom Walter, serial entrepreneur, national speaker, and co-author of the award-winning book “It’s My Company Too! How Entangled Companies Move Beyond Employee Engagement for Remarkable Results,” on Thursday, April 12, at 6 p.m. in David Straz Hall 105
With more than 40 years of experience as an owner and operator in the service industry, Walter will impart his wisdom and knowledge gained from entrepreneurial practice and academic research. Covering entrepreneurship, leadership and generation integration as a marketplace differentiator topics, he will share his experience from the start up, acquisition, sale, and—in a few cases—termination of businesses in multiple markets.
Walter has participated in the start up of 32 companies and is active in nine of those companies today. When he isn’t handling his responsibilities as Chief Culture Officer of Tasty Catering, a Forbes Best Small Company in America, he is found serving as a member of many societies and educational groups including Small Giants Community, Academy of Management, and Chicago Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame.
