Building a Vision for the 21st Century Creative City with Christina Scheppelmann

March 4th at Noon
The Sheraton, 1400 6th Avenue


Christina Scheppelmann, an arts administrator with experience in the US, European, and Middle East markets, is now the Seattle Opera’s fourth general director.

Seattle is a world-class city that celebrates the arts.  Its creative spirit is inspired not only by its artists and cultural institutions, but also by its vast technology community which employs writers, designers, and web developers.  However, this growth is in danger, especially in the arts sector which is a people-driven business.  Christina will speak about what we need to have a world-class artistic city and our collective responsibility to artists to make that a reality.

Seattle 4 Rotary Business Mentors Program Showcase

Thirty teams composed of the University of Washington Foster School of Business faculty, Rotary business mentors, and UW students currently working with thirty small businesses; over $100 million in new revenue generated; and support for 50,000 jobs in Washington State --all the result of an idea 25 years ago when six local Rotarians collaborated with director Michael Verchot to found the UW Foster School Business Mentors and Consulting Program.
It began with the hope that the Foster School of Business and interested business executives could form up to 10 teams to consult with, and assist, women- and minority-owned small businesses thrive. The group recognized the needs facing small and new business owners.  Their plan included bringing students onto the teams so the students could get 'real-life experience' while learning.  The small idea bloomed and now the Consulting and Business Development Center has paired more than 1,500 students with over 300 Rotarians under the guidance of more than a dozen UW faculty members to work with those in economically distressed and under-represented communities.  The consulting addresses whatever is needed from budgeting to marketing, human resources to taxes.
