Procter & Gamble president and CEO A.J. Lafley discussing leadership in a global environment | March 3, 2006

The Williams College of Business is hosting the Distinguished Speaker Series beginning March 23 at the Cintas Center. The inaugural event includes Procter & Gamble President and CEO A.G. Lafley, who is discussing leadership in a global environment.

The annual luncheon series brings top-level business, academic and political leaders to Xavier’s campus to discuss world issues, introduce new ideas, generate discussion and further the educational mission of the college.

Additionally, students, faculty, alumni and members of the business community have the opportunity to interact with the speaker at each event. The next scheduled speaker is Robert Castellini, Chairman of Castellini Co., and chief executive officer of the Cincinnati Reds.

”The Distinguished Speaker Series will allow us to invite world class leaders to Cincinnati for a conversation with our three stakeholders: students, faculty and the business community,” says Ali Malekzadeh, dean of the Williams College of Business. “We are fortunate to have Mr. Lafley and then Mr. Castellini as our first two distinguished speakers.”

Attendance for the series is available only through table sponsorships. For more information please call 513 745-2820 or visit www.xavier.edu/dss.
