St. Norbert College’s CEO Breakfast Series has announced the speaker lineup for 2024-25. For over 25 years, the CEO Breakfast Series has showcased stories of distinguished business leaders over breakfast and networking with business community members.

Through the college’s Donald J. Schneider School of Business & Economics, The CEO Breakfast Series is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for local businesspeople to meet face-to-face with some of the most respected leaders in the business community and to network with other leaders in the region.
