Business Ethics: Your First or Last Frontier?


Adrienne Cregar Jandler – Atlantic Webworks

Register_Now_roundBack for another amazing topic is Adrienne Cregar Jandler, President of Atlantic Webworks in Greensboro.  Adrienne will be discussing “Business Ethics: Your First or Last Frontier?” on Tuesday, May 13th from 11:30 am – 1 pm at BB&T Ballpark.  An abstract of Adrienne’s topic is listed below:

Large corporations usually have formal corporate ethics policies, and many regulated professions have codes of ethics. But what about small businesses? How do smaller companies establish and communicate their ethics, and integrate ethics into the corporate culture? Is there a cost to formally instituting ethics into the company’s fabric? How does having a strong ethical foundation impact the bottom line? Hiring? Retention? Join Adrienne Cregar Jandler, President of Atlantic Webworks, and winner of the American Business Ethics Award, for a practical discussion on business ethics and corporate citizenship.

Answering “Hamlet’s Blackberry” – April’s Lunch and Book Discussion

In William Powers’ book, Hamlet’s Blackberry: Building A Good Life In The Digital Age, we are confronted with details and theories about a truth we already know: The Surge of Digital Technology into our lives is radically changing the way we relate and communicate. Is this a positive change? What is the role of technology in our growth, development and communication as business professionals? Does technology solve or create problems in the work place? How do we deal with the demand on us for “screen time” and off-line tasks?

Join us on Tuesday, April 8th, from 11:30 am until 1 pm at BB&T Ballpark as a panel of 4 local business professionals discusses their reactions to and thoughts about not only Mr. Powers’ book, but their experience with doing ‘good’ business in the digital age.

For our meetings at BB&T Ballpark, there will be a buffet lunch.  Lunch will be all-inclusive for $15.
