Business Colloquium at LakelandFive successful Lakeland College graduates returned to campus in late February for the school's day-long "Business Colloquium" event.

Caitlin Brotz, Admira Ibisevic, Luke Pfeifer, Jill Wagner and Karl Ulrich spoke to Lakeland's business students and visiting high school prospects, sharing sage advice and passionately promoting their alma mater. The Lakeland grads then appeared individually in classes for special presentations.

Brotz, a 2005 graduate with a degree in business administration, is the founder and owner of Sheboygan's Olivu 426 – a manufacturer and distributor of natural cosmetics and beauty products.

Ibisevic, a 2009 grad with a double major (business administration and marketing), has ascended quickly at energy management company Orion Energy Systems. She is currently the director of internal operations at the Manitowoc-based company.

Pfeifer, a 2003 resort management grad, works in Seattle for Agilysys, which produces logistical software for hotels and resorts around the world.

Wagner, who earned her bachelor's degree in 1992 and her MBA from Lakeland in 2005, was recently promoted to president of Appleton-based Integrity Insurance.

And Ulrich, who graduated with a degree in German and history before advancing to law school at Notre Dame, is a partner and shareholder at the law firm of Sebaly Shillito + Dyer in Dayton, Ohio.

The five guests began their day speaking to small groups of potential Lakeland College students who were visiting for the day. Then, the graduates sat at a table in front of all Lakeland College business students and answered questions presented by longtime Lakeland Professor of Business Administration J. Garland Schilcutt.

The visitors wrapped up their day by guest lecturing in five different classrooms.
