Skogen brings life’s lessons to Business Week audience

top-story-skogenFestival Foods Chairman of the Board Dave Skogen had a message to share after nearly six decades in business. Life is about “earning, learning and returning.”

Skogen presented to a full house on the stage of UW-Green Bay’s Weidner Center for the Performing Arts Thursday (March 26) evening as the keynote speaker for the University’s fifth annual Business Week dinner.

Skogen had the rapt attention of students, faculty, business leaders and sponsors, alumni and other guests, as he discussed growing his family business from one IGA store in Onalaska to the Festival Foods chain that boasts 20 stores and more than 5,000 employees statewide.

“We’re all in the same business, serving and enriching others,” he said. “From mechanic to physician, from educators to grocers.”

Skogen challenged current leaders and asked students to think about their leadership opportunities as they enter the working world. He left the room with these nuggets to consider:

“Don’t confuse management with leadership. Management is what we do, leadership is who we are. Leadership is influencing other people to action. Leadership is an acquired skill and the test of a servant leader (one who meets the legitimate needs of others) will leave those they lead better than when they came.”

  • “Good leaders are more plowhorses than showhorses.”
  • “Practice behaviors until they become habits.”
  • “To develop a winning culture, hire character. Search out people with moral maturity. Hold people accountable and the consistent underperformers? Share them with the competition.”
  • “Business is a game, and winning is a blast.”
  • “Excellence motivates, not money.”
  • Finally, every day, “focus on what you get to do not what you have to do.”

Skogen has achieved a great deal of success throughout his lifetime in the grocery business. He was named “IGA Retailer of the Year’” in 1989 and Wisconsin “Grocer of the Year” in 2005. He and his wife were named “Outstanding Philanthropists” in 2007 by the Upper Mississippi Valley Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

Skogen is the author of the book, “Boomerang! Leadership Principles that Bring the Customer Back,” about the leadership influences and philosophies that brought him success in the grocery industry. In an interview upon releasing the book, Skogen said the book uncovers what he believes are the leadership intangibles: honesty, accountability, service to a higher purpose and love.

Associate Dean and Director of the Austin E. Cofrin School of Business, Lucy Arendt, served as the event emcee. She shared the following highlights from the School of Business in the past year:

Faculty awards and recognition — Don McCartney was the recipient of the Founders Award for Institutional Development, an annual award given to only one individual.

Strong enrollment — The School of Business serves more than 800 undergraduate and graduate students; Business Administration is and has been the largest major on campus for many years. More than 80 percent stay in Northeast Wisconsin after they graduate.

Successful recruitment of faculty including those with expertise include finance, MIS, strategy, and supply chain.

Establishment of two Advisory Boards, one with students and one with rising alumni, which helps the School of Business to examine and enhance its curriculum and ensure student success. A third board composed of business leaders will be formed this year.

Scholarships — more than 10 new scholarship funds were created, mostly endowed in the past year

Internships — Students completing internships has increased significantly over the past two years. Appreciation to Professor Ann Selk and others.

Student recognition — example, Bryan Boeck was one of only nine students in the state selected as a recipient of the LeRoy Schmidt 150-Hour Accounting Scholarship from the Wisconsin Institute of Certified Public Accountants Educational Foundation. Two UWGB alumni, Mary Frank-Arlt (2008) and Joel Hansen (2001), were chosen as the recipients of the 2015 Outstanding Graduate Award for the UW-Oshkosh MBA program.

Accreditation progress — Received recent approval from the initial Self-Evaluation Report from AACSB, the most prestigious accrediting body for business education in the world, meaning UWGB is on target to achieve AACSB accreditation within the next few years.

First-ever endowed chair — Professor David Radosevich was appointed the Austin E. Cofrin Endowed chair, recognizing his productive and sustained commitment to the vision and mission of the School of Business and UWGB.

Cofrin Executive-in-Residence — Tim Weyenberg was recently named the first-ever Austin E. Cofrin Executive-in-Residence. He is the past CEO and current Executive Chair of the Board of Directors for Foth. He has become a key contributor, helping faculty, staff, and students build and strengthen relationships between the Business School and the community.

Business Week keynote to feature Festival Foods Chairman of the Board

skogen-72ppi-top-story-2The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s Business Week 2015 will feature a Wisconsin businessman with a long history of success. Dave Skogen, Chairman of the Board for Festival Foods, will share his expertise in a keynote to students, business faculty and guests on Thursday, March 26.

The Skogen family’s history in the grocery business began in 1946, when Dave’s parents, Paul and Jane, acquired an IGA store in Onalaska, Wis. When Paul Skogen passed away in 1976, Dave and his wife, Barb, took over the organization. In 1990, the first Festival Foods was opened, and the family shifted the store format to address changes in consumer buying habits. Today, Dave’s son Mark, serves as CEO and President. The family operates 20 stores throughout Wisconsin and employs more than 5,000 people.

Dave Skogen has achieved a great deal of success throughout his lifetime in the grocery business. He was named “IGA Retailer of the Year’” in 1989 and Wisconsin “Grocer of the Year” in 2005. He and his wife were named “Outstanding Philanthropists” in 2007 by the Upper Mississippi Valley Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

Skogen is the author of the book, “Boomerang! Leadership Principles that Bring the Customer Back,” about the leadership influences and philosophies that brought him success in the grocery industry. In an interview upon releasing the book, Skogen said the book uncovers what he believes are the leadership intangibles: honesty, accountability, service to a higher purpose and love.

“These things apply to business, family life, parenting,” he said.

Along with his professional endeavors, Skogen is committed to community service. He previously served as President of the Onalaska Rotary, and was named a hometown hero by President Clinton in 1998. He chaired several campaigns in Onalaska, including a campaign to build a new YMCA and the John Shelton Hardwood Floor campaign at Onalaska High School. He has been honored with numerous community awards and recognition.

The keynote address is part of the 2015 Business Week events, with events led by both the Austin E. Cofrin School of Business and UWGB Career Services. Events such as the Dine Like a Professional etiquette luncheon, Job and Internship Fair, and an elevator pitch competition, are held throughout the spring semester to help students prepare for post-University opportunities and take advantage of this year’s theme “Engaging in Public Life.”

The Thursday, March 26 dinner, networking reception, and keynote will take place in the Weidner Center and is by invitation only.

Pitch perfect: Students compete for best elevator speech

As part of Business Week 2014, the Cofrin School of Business conducts a competition titled “Create Impact with Your Professional Pitch.” Students created a one-minute video that highlights their strengths and value as a prospective employee. Out of 82 initial participants, 15 finalists were selected for the next round. Four practicing managers will determine the eventual winners based on their professionalism, communication skills and meaningfulness of the message. The final round of the elevator pitch competition will be held from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 25 in Phoenix Room B of the University Union. See more.
 

New in pictures: A bang-up Business Week at UW-Green Bay

Call it a success. The third annual Business Week certainly touched all three elements of this year’s theme: “Creativity, Innovation and Vision.” The event was sponsored by the Austin E. Cofrin School of Business and Career Services at UW-Green Bay. Click here to see a photo gallery and summary of events – thanks to our terrific Marketing and Communication interns.

Business Week 2013 offers 360° of Career Readiness

UW-Green Bay, Business Week 2013Call it a success. The third annual Business Week certainly touched all three elements of this year’s theme: “Creativity, Innovation and Vision.” The event was sponsored by the Austin E. Cofrin School of Business and Career Services at UW-Green Bay.

This year’s lineup (see news release) of events included a job and internship fair, an employer panel, an etiquette lunch, panel presentations and mock interview day, as well as a keynote presentation from Betsy Mitchell, retired Vice President of Organizational Development for the Green Bay Packers.

“To me, there’s one big underlying theme of all the ‘Business Week’ activities,” says Associate Professor of Business Administration, Bill Lepley, “opportunities for student interactions with business professionals. The sponsored activities aren’t always brand-new ones for our campus, but our ‘packaging’ — as part of Business Week — helps raise their profile.”

Business Week 2013 included a new event called the “Elevator Pitch & Networking Night,” in which students had the chance to create a 60-second video clip pitching their career strengths, abilities and goals.

Students’ videos were first judged by a panel made up primarily of UW-Green Bay professors. The videos were reviewed and scored and the top 15 contestants gave their speeches to a live audience of roughly 80 students and business professionals from the community. A panel of community business professionals judged and chose the top three contestants, Amanda Eckelberg, Danielle Jerominski and Charles Reimer III, who won $200, $150 and $100, respectively. All 15 finalists received a cash prize.

Reimer, a junior majoring in Business Administration with an emphasis in management, said leadership and management experience from his time serving in the Air Force helped him to write his pitch in an organized manner allowing him to highlight his accomplishments for a potential employer.

“I prepared by asking myself what information would be relevant to a prospective employer and crafted a message that contained as much of that information as possible,” Reimer said. “Part of any supervisor’s job in the Air Force is to write performance reports and award packages, and they require very specific language.”

After presenting his pitch, Reimer was approached by a representative from a local company who was impressed by Reimer’s military experience. After 10 minutes of chatting, the representative shared his business card with Reimer and told him to interview with the company for a position with management responsibilities.

The mock interviews day provided students the opportunity to gain experience interviewing with community business professionals. Communication major Nicole Lasee participated in the mock interview to get practical interviewing experience in a low-stress setting.

“The process was very stress free, and the interviewer and I were able to talk afterwards about my strengths and weaknesses within the interview,” Lasee said. “I signed up for the vocalized feedback. The most stressful part of an interview is wondering how it went; in this setting I was able to hear it firsthand.”

Lasee said she interviewed with Mark Kersher from Schneider National who shared the importance of building contacts.

“My experience was very beneficial and I learned a lot about how I interview after being able to talk with my interviewer,” Lasee said. “It was an excellent experience, and the materials that Career Services offered to prepare for the event were helpful as well.”

Business Week 2013 closed with a networking reception and dinner held at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, March 7. The invitation-only event gave top students from the Austin E. Cofrin School of Business the opportunity to network with top business leaders from the community. The keynote address, which closely tied to the Business Week 2013 theme of “Creativity, Innovation and Vision,” was given by Betsy Mitchell, retired Vice President of Organizational Development for the Green Bay Packers.

The top three pitches from the elevator pitch competition were also shared at the networking reception and dinner where many more business professionals were in attendance.

“I was approached by many people congratulating me for my accomplishments and got a few more very solid proposals to apply for jobs,” Reimer said. “I traded business cards and am currently polishing my resume for interviews.”

Business Administration Prof. Lucy Arendt said UW-Green Bay students left a great impression.

“Business leaders commented that they were extremely impressed with our students’ preparation and self-confidence,” she said. “Business Week 2013 also gave the Cofrin School of Business the opportunity to showcase the range of exciting initiatives being undertaken by our faculty and students to enhance the connection between the university and the community.”

UW-Green Bay’s Cofrin School of Business presents Business Week 2013

UW-Green Bay’s Austin E. Cofrin School of Business, in partnership with Career Services, will present a host of activities as part of Business Week 2013, to be held Feb. 25-March 7 on the campus at 2420 Nicolet Drive.

Now in its third year, Business Week is a valuable opportunity for local businesspeople and students in UW-Green Bay’s Austin E. Cofrin School of Business. Students are able to add to their classroom learning by participating in a variety of events, each of which includes business leaders from the local community.

“We are very pleased to be able to continue this learning and networking opportunity for our students,” said Larry McGregor, lecturer of Management for the Cofrin School of Business. “It truly is an ideal situation. Our students get experience, advice and input from our business community, and receive help with resumes and the chance to talk one-on-one with potential employers. Our business partners get to meet and develop relationships with our students, faculty and staff, while providing possible hiring opportunities after students graduate.”

The theme for Business Week 2013 is “Creativity, Innovation and Vision,” a nod to the 2013 campus Common Theme of the same name. The Common Theme is a yearlong program to engage the UW-Green Bay campus and surrounding community in the ideals of a liberal arts education and the University’s interdisciplinary mission. It is designed to encourage students, faculty, staff and community members to focus on a general theme from multiple perspectives, and to have a shared experience with open discussion and critical thinking.

Business Week events include presentations, mock interviews, a job and internship fair and other career-exploration activities, all of which provide networking opportunities for local business leaders and students. An invitation-only keynote address will serve as the week’s culminating event, featuring Betsy Mitchell, retired Vice President of Organizational Development with the Green Bay Packers. Mitchell worked for the Packers for nearly two decades, and was credited with pioneering work that served as a model for the NFL Player Assistance Programs. She has earned numerous career accolades and is widely regarded for her unique style of leadership development.

Alumnus, Business Week speaker King to be featured on ‘Undercover Boss’

He held court as keynoter for UW-Green Bay’s Business Week dinner March 8, and now UW-Green Bay alumnus Mark King (’81) is coming to a small screen near you. King, CEO and president of TaylorMade-adidas Golf, will be featured Friday (April 6) on the CBS show “Undercover Boss.” Look for King sporting a shaved head, scruffy beard, earrings and fake teeth to go incognito as he views the inner workings of his company. He’ll work in a few different capacities, including quality control auditor at a golf ball plant and golf club assembler at the company’s headquarters. Tune in or set those DVRs for 7 p.m. In the meantime, here’s a look back at King’s recent campus visit.

Alumnus King, Business Week featured in Sunday Press-Gazette

Earlier this month, we brought you the details of a dynamic Business Week keynote address from alumnus Mark King, CEO and president of TaylorMade-adidas Golf. On April 6, you’ll be able to catch King in a different role — starring in the CBS show “Undercover Boss.” The appearance — and King’s Business Week address — was the lead item in Sunday’s (March 18) Green Bay Press-Gazette business column. You can read it, and see a story and photos from King’s time on campus, click here:
