The Kelley Center for Entrepreneurship at Dakota Wesleyan University invites the community to attend a free speaker on Feb. 24.

Andreas Widmer, director of entrepreneurship programs at The Catholic University of America and president of The Carpenter's Fund, will be on campus giving the lecture, "Business as a Moral Enterprise," at 9 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 24, in Java City within the McGovern Library. This speaker is free and open to the public.

Widmer was previously the co-founder of SEVEN Fund, a philanthropic organization run by entrepreneurs who invested in original research, books and films to further enterprise solutions to poverty.

He is the author of "The Pope & The CEO: Pope John Paul II's Lessons to a Young Swiss Guard," a book exploring leadership lessons that Widmer learned serving as a Swiss Guard protecting Pope John Paul II and refined during his career as a successful business executive.

He is a frequent speaker around the world on issues related to business ethics, entrepreneurship, business leadership, productivity and the challenges of executive management.
