Preparing Poster Presentations @ Communication Arts & Sciences, Room 161
Mar 11 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Preparing Poster Presentations @ Communication Arts & Sciences, Room 161

A presentation poster requires a very different approach than a research report on the same work. You need to be visually appealing, draw in your reader, and convey your purpose and findings in a concise, direct manner. Dr. Tom Wolff, Faculty Emeritus from the College of Engineering, has judged engineering project posters for many years. He will speak about layout, communication, and people’s perceptions of typeface and graphic design. Workshop participants will review examples of posters—both good and not-so-good—and consider common pitfalls. Discussion of the function of a poster session as a vehicle for sharing your work with visitors and judges will conclude the workshop.

Innovate State Speaker Series: Bob Fish @ Gaynor Entrepreneurship Lab
Mar 25 @ 6:00 pm
Innovate State Speaker Series: Bob Fish @ Gaynor Entrepreneurship Lab | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Receiving his degree from Michigan State University’s School of Hospitality Business, Bob Fish has been Chairman of the Board of the Michigan Restaurant Association, Chair of the Small Business Association of Michigan, and was a Founding Board member of MiQuest, a Michigan entrepreneurial incubator. With all of this under his belt, on March 15, 1995, Bob Fish and Michael McFall founded BIGGBY® COFFEE with a single store in East Lansing, Michigan. One year later, and on the cusp of opening a second location, the two entrepreneurs, on a handshake and $4,000, decided to franchise the concept. BIGGBY® COFFEE’s cultural values of Make Friends, Have Fun, Be Yourself, and Share Great Coffee help coffee-lovers and the coffee-curious alike benefit from a less pretentious and fun approach to the standard gourmet cafe paradigm. Today, there are 239 locations in nine states. Bob enjoys walking, mainly around Saugatuck, MI.
