Outreach & Engagement
A second round of the Idea Exchange Business Book Club, a program from USI's Center for Human Resource Development and College of Business, will begin with an introductory session at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, October 5 at Innovation Pointe located at 318 Main Street in downtown Evansville. Additional meetings will take place throughout the year from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on select Wednesdays at the same location.

Tom Austerman, president and CEO of Evansville Commerce Bank, Linda White, CEO of Deaconess Health System, Bob Jones, president and CEO of Old National Bank, Ron Romain, CEO of United Companies, and many more regional leaders have shared their top business books for participants to discuss.

Business books are created to make us think and help us solve problems, while group brainstorming creates new ideas, motivations, and creative solutions. The Idea Exchange Business Book Club will combine each of these powerful business resources into one innovative program. The program will also serve as a professional networking opportunity for business owners, managers, and entrepreneurs while providing a unique forum for discovering new organizational, management, and entrepreneurial ideas.

Participants will read and discuss nine leading business books. Sessions will be organized and facilitated to emphasize engagement among group members as they discuss ideas, debate, and share experiences.

Facilitators will include Bryan Bourdeau, USI instructor in business, Karen Lance Ubelhor, integration product manager at Old National Bank, and Gene Recker, manager of education and entrepreneurship for USI at Innovation Pointe.

Registration is $300 and books can be borrowed from the Center for Human Resource Development.

For more information, or to register, contact USI's Division of Outreach and Engagement at 812/464-1989 or 800/467-8600. Registrations can also be completed online at with course number BUS560.
