Event Description:

We believe we all know the difference between right and wrong, and, OF COURSE, you run or conduct your business with the guide of the best moral compass possible... 

But what about those situations that aren't so cut and dry? Businesses and business professionals are OFTEN confronted with situations where the "right" course of action may not be obvious. Even if you don't have a big team or a board of executives to consider, repercussions from decisions made by either your employees or yourself have the potential to adversely impact both you and your business brand. Find out about the ethical "potholes" that are out there today, so you can avoid falling into them. 
Donn King, Pellissippi State Community College: As an Associate Professor of Communications for over 32 years (plus being a Pastor, speaker, and owner of his own communications company), Donn has an extensive background in teaching the importance of not just how to communicate, but also building and maintaining your ethical integrity as a leader and professional. 
Drew Rutherford, Transworld Business Advisors: You might not be thinking about selling your business today, but don't you want to be prepared if a great opportunity comes along? Drew helps businesses ensure they've taken all the right steps to make their business as attractive as possible to a buyer, and that includes ensuring there's nothing that might raise an ethical red flag for that buyer. 
Gregg Bostick, Small Business Development Center (SBDC): As the Executive Director of our SBDC, Gregg deals DAILY with advising  businesses of all sizes and industries who've made ethical mistakes and those who have successfully navigated ethical dilemmas. He also brings his prior corporate business career and experience to the conversation. 

Steven Lipsey, Lipsey Morrison Attorneys : A former member of the chamber's own board of directors who served extensively as an Executive Officer, Steve's legal expertise focuses on Bankruptcy and Debt Collection, as well as Civil Litigation, helping parties who have been damaged by another person or business. He navigates the legal consequences that can arise from minor contract disputes up to complex commercial litigations. 

NOTE: LIGHT Lunch refreshments PROVIDED (Included at NO COST to existing chamber members)! You may also bring a Brown Bag.

FWKCC’s Lunch & Learn Series provides both chamber members and members of the business community with an opportunity to learn Best Practices on a variety of topics including, but not limited to:  Cyber Security, HR Resources, Business Continuity and Business Budgeting and Finance. This member-to-member format lets panelists informally SHARE their helpful industry standard knowledge that is ALSO specific to the business climate and requirements of our own city, region and state.
