Penn State Altoona will present "Corey Ciocchetti: Chasing Authentic Success" on Thursday, December 6, 2012 at 9:00 p.m. in the Pond View Lounge of the Slep Student Center.
An assistant professor of business ethics and legal studies in the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver, Ciocchetti speaks to thousands of students each year on the topic of “authentic success” and living an ethical life.
In his keynotes, Ciocchetti encourages people of all ages to chase the truly important things in life such as a solid character, strong personal relationships and a sense of contentment. These "real rabbits" are compared and contrasted to worldly types of success such as excessive wealth, popularity and prestige. Audiences leave with a better sense of what it takes to develop character, set priorities and gain a big-picture perspective.
