In early fall, a group of 12 students attended ‘Fun is Good!,’ a day-long seminar at the St. Paul Saints’ baseball field. This event followed the university convocation presentation by Mike Veeck and Fran Zeuli, co-founders of Fun is Good, a consulting company that brings marketing and leadership lessons to organizations of all sizes. Students said they had an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Several made valuable connections for their careers and internships, including meeting Joan Steffend, who has received the Minnesota Broadcasting Hall of Fame Award for her work.
This event was sponsored by the Saint Teresa’s and Saint Peter’s Leadership Clubs. Participants included officers and club members.
The seminar was a day-long set of workshops that covered workplace generational diversity; joy and passion in the workplace and career; creativity and gratitude; learning from failure; goal-setting; and team/project management. Saint Mary’s students were the only undergraduates in attendance; most attendees were business entrepreneurs, business workers, or graduate students.
