Mark Sheffert, chairman and CEO, Manchester Companies, Inc. will discuss the societal forces attacking capitalism at the Carlson School of Management's "1st Tuesday Speaker Series" on Tuesday, August 3 at 11:30 a.m. in the University of Minnesota's McNamara Alumni Center.
In his speech titled, "Was Karl Marx Right? A Call to Leaders to Preserve Capitalism," the nationally-recognized business advisor will take a no-nonsense, yet humorous, approach to the topic while offering his opinions on what leaders can do to preserve our capitalistic society.
