Entrepreneurship and Human Values

The Grace A. Tanner Center is pleased to announce the beginnings of a new partnership with the SUU School of Business by joining to sponsor two speakers in the Entrepreneurship Speaker Series.

Our first guest, Brett Binford, is the the co-founder/ co-owner of Mudshark Studios, Eutectic Gallery, Portland Growler Company, Kept Goods, and The Clay Compound in Portland Oregon. He is a ceramicist and sculptor by trade but has developed several start up companies including co- founding Mudshark Studios, a custom ceramic design and production business, with partner Chris Lyon.

Our second guest, Julie Castle, is the chief development, marketing and communications officer for Best Friends Animal Society. In that role, she has led a rebranding effort for the organization and introduced the new call to action, Save Them All. Julie is also a graduate of Southern Utah University magna cum laude with a B.S., and currently serves on the national alumni board.

Both of these speakers embody the connection between entrepreneurship, business, and human values. All events are free and open to the public but spaces are limited for the Lunch and Dialogue sessions so please register early.
