What is the CEO Forum Education Initiative?
The University of Saint Francis CEO Forum is nearing 20 years in bringing top entrepreneurs to campus to speak to our students and business community. In 2011, we began an effort to further expand the insight and wisdom shared by these accomplished CEOs to high schools, where young entrepreneurial talent is naturally taking shape.

2011 Keynote Speaker video now
The 2011 forum features Culver's co-founder and CEO, Craig Culver. Beyond a connection your students may have as a Culver's restaurant customer, they will hear firsthand the humble beginnings of the national restaurant chain that now boasts more than 440 stores. His small town success story reveals how he thinks, what he worries about and what challenges he faced along the way. It was not a smooth path to success, but his family-owned business survived due in large part to his guiding principles: "Don't do something just for money. Do it for love. Do it for passion. Do it for happiness."
