‘Think St. Paul’ lecture to focus on cultural business issues

The next talk in this year’s “Think St. Paul” downtown lecture series will feature a College of St. Catherine business professor who will discuss international cultural business issues.

Sherry Tousley will talk about “Crossing the Great Divide: Cultural Issues in International Business” from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, in the downtown St. Paul Jerome Hill Theater, US Bank Trust Center, 180 E. Fifth St.

She will discuss some humorous marketing efforts that did not work abroad, some core global differences, and ways that companies can succeed by adapting to other cultures.

The lecture is free and open to all; no registration is required. Sponsors of the series are the Capital City Partnership and the University of St. Thomas’ School of Continuing Studies, Management Center and College of Business.

Now in its fifth season, the series this year is titled “Thinking About Business.” The final talks in the series will be given by Charles Denny who will discuss ethical leadership on March 19, and by Bill Monson who will discuss the difficulty of leading change on April 2.

The lecture series’ coordinator is Dr. Kathryn Oakley of the St. Thomas School of Continuing Studies. For more information or to obtain a program brochure, visit www.stthomas.edu/scs or call (651) 962-5950.
