Practical Lessons in Success

Practical Lessons in Success is a Holy Cross College business seminar series where successful business entrepreneurs share their secrets to students, faculty, and the local community. The program provides a real world business prospective that amplifies the academic experience, yet contain valuable insights for any business executive in today’s highly competitive business environment.

During the Fall 2017 semester, the Practical Lessons in Success speaker series featured three highly accomplished speakers from a range of career fields.

September 27: Community leader Gregorio Chavez, Jr.’s talk, “A Migrant’s Journey to Leadership,” focused on his decades-long commitment to civil rights and the ways his life experiences have shaped his personal values and career.

October 26: Elicia Feasel, deputy director of the Historic Preservation Commission of South Bend and St. Joseph County spoke about how she has used her liberal arts education in her efforts to establish lasting sustainability in existing historical buildings.

November 15: Louis M. Nanni, vice president for University Relations at the University of Notre Dame, was the final speaker of the fall 2017 season, and spoke about the privilege of serving the community.

All programs are Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. in Driscoll Auditorium on the Holy Cross College campus. Seminars are free, open to the public, and are followed by a reception in the Vincent Atrium.
