My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this:  Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.

James: 1:19-20


Keith Quesenberry, assistant professor of marketing, was recently quoted in the New York Times article “Yes, More Facebook Friends Are Asking You for Money” on Dec. 26. He also published an article in Harvard Business Review “The Basic Social Media Mistakes Companies Still Make”  on Jan. 2.

EMPOWER is back!

One of the most popular wellness programs we’ve offered at Messiah is back for the spring semester. EMPOWER is an on-site weight management program that enables participants to move forward in meeting personal goals, provides helpful knowledge in the areas of physical activity and nutrition, and creates a community of support.

Through eight weekly meetings, utilizing interactive engagement with a senior health coach and individual sharing, participants are guided into a lifetime of weight management success, and strengthened by a community of support within the workplace.

We are offering the 8-week program on Mondays from 12:30-1:30 p.m., beginning Jan. 29. We can only offer the program if we get at least 15 employees to register, so find a friend and sign up today. Please only register if you are able to attend at least six of the eight sessions. Register by emailing Doug Miller at Deadline for registrations is Jan. 15.

Personal branding – networking breakfast

Networking Breakfast – “Personal branding that benefits others”
Date: Wed., Feb. 21
Speakers: David Hagenbuch and Keith Quesenberry

Businesses often invest significant time and energy to build their brands. Individuals should do the same, not just for their own benefit but for the good of the organizations they serve, as well as for others. But, what is a personal brand and how should people go about building theirs?

Messiah College marketing professors David Hagenbuch and Keith Quesenberry are well-qualified to answer these questions. Both have written books related to personal branding and each brings considerable experience to bear on what has become an increasingly important, but often misunderstood topic.

Join us at the next Messiah College Business Alumni networking breakfast to hear Hagenbuch and Quesenberry share their unique perspectives and learn how strong personal brands can have positive impact beyond their owners.

For more information about the speakers,

7 – 7:30 a.m. | Registration and networking
