A Tea Ceremony and Community Conversation with Jeff Champeau
October 8 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
This month, Social Good Morning and Well Entrepreneur partner up to bring you a unique brew of social innovation, conscious culture, and wellness with Jeff Champeau, Vice President of Business Development at Rishi Tea and Botanicals.
There will be networking and a tea tasting for the first 30 minutes, followed by a matcha tea ceremony run by guests from Rishi Tea. We will close with a conversation about ancient tea practices, innovative business strategies, and how human connection is at the root of growing a company and expanding to new markets.
Social Good Morning is a talk series hosted by our very own Entrepreneur-in-Residence of Social Innovation, Mark Fairbanks. LEC invites one local social innovator per month to have a short interview with Mark and then an open-format discussion, fielding questions from the audience about their strategies and passions. Topics of conversation range from poverty to sustainability to inclusivity and beyond. Join us for this fantastic opportunity to hear from and chat with a Milwaukee community professional and forge meaningful connections with a multidisciplinary audience of faculty, community members, and students alike. Learn more about what it takes to become a social innovator in Milwaukee.
Well Entrepreneur is a talk series hosted by our very own Well Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Amelia Coffaro. Well Entrepreneur is an initiative, reimagining a healthier path of entrepreneurship in a way that supports individual and collective well being. It is an interactive talk series featuring entrepreneurs who share their insight on what it means to be well as they start and grow a business, how to create more well-being, accessibility, and inclusion in their work, and why this matters for the whole of entrepreneurship. Each talk includes a short, guided meditation.
This event is open to all and is a part of the LEC Teaching Fellows Weekly Friday program.
