Details: The Brown and Harvard Alumni Clubs invite you to an evening with Dan Hill, an internationally renowned expert on facial coding and emotional dynamics.

"Everything is in the face," wrote the Roman philosopher Cicero.

When we interact with others, our obvious identifiers are gender, race, relative age, and beauty. However, at a deeper level exist subtle clues about who you're interacting with or observing. These delicate expressions come from facial muscle movements that reveal whether a person is emotionally engaged or not, and if engaged when and how so. Are you winning them over? Creating distrust inadvertently? Confusing them? And how about their personality - Is this somebody you want to hire, ally with, or even marry?

Dan Hill learned facial coding from Dr. Paul Ekman, an advisor for Pixar's Inside Out movie and Fox's hit series, Lie to Me. For almost 20 years, Hill has applied facial coding to everything from market research for blue-chip companies, to work in Division I and pro sports, to critiquing presidential candidates for major networks.

Dan will provide insights on the little clues that capture big truths about who we are and how we behave while touching on some key examples from his most recent book: 100 Celebrities from the Silent Generation to the Millennials Era which will be available for order at the event.

Dan received his Ph.D. from Rutgers University, following studies at Brown University, Oxford University and St. Olaf College.

Details: Although every industry has its challenges, some sectors must compete amidst tremendous technological innovation and disruption, changing customer expectations and a highly commoditized array of products and services that make it difficult to differentiate. One of those sectors is banking. Yet, while a significant percentage of banks have either folded or been sold during the past ten years, Bell Bank has experienced rapid growth to become one of the largest independent banks in the country. Michael Solberg, CEO, will share how his organization has organically grown its assets by $3 billion over the last ten years, largely belying industry trends, especially following the recession. Solberg's team redefined their bottom line in order to grow the bottom line, more fully developing a culture that balances care for people with attention to results. Solberg will explain the "magic" behind several unique programs that have strengthened Bell's company values and helped make even the most mundane jobs meaningful and positive.

Michael Solberg is President and Chief Executive Officer of Bell Bank, headquartered in his hometown of Fargo, N.D. He has worked for the company since 1998.

With over $4 billion in bank assets and $5 billion in trust assets, Bell Bank is one of the largest independently owned banks in the country and is the largest in Minnesota and the Dakotas. The bank is also one of the region's largest home mortgage providers, originating over $2 billion annually. Nationally, Bell is a leader in consumer-driven healthcare, with its HealthCare Bank division and affiliated company, Discovery Benefits, serving more than 7 million consumers across the country.

Bell Bank's commitment to its staff and community has been highlighted by media outlets including the CBS Evening News, BBC, Good Morning America, USA Today and People magazine for its "Pay It Forward" project, launched by Solberg, which annually provides every full-time employee with $1,000 to give to individuals, families or organizations in need. To date, the program has given over $10 million.

Michael holds degrees from Concordia College (Moorhead, Minn.) and William Mitchell College of Law (Saint Paul). He has served as campaign chair for the United Way of Cass Clay, board chair for the Trollwood Performing Arts School and served on the Concordia College Board of Regents. He currently is on the board of Prairie Heights Community Church, The Bush Foundation and The Guthrie Theater. He and his wife, Charleen, live in Fargo with their three children.

“Building Bridges--National and Global Politics and Religious Tensions"
Time: 5:30 pm
Location: Gloria Dei Lutheran Church 700 Snelling Ave. S. St. Paul, MN 55116
Sponsored by: YAANW
Cost: $10
Contact us:
Is this event open to all TCAN member schools? Yes
Details: Gregory E. Sterling, The Reverend Henry L. Slack Dean and the Lillian Claus Professor of New Testament, Yale Divinity School

The globalization of our world has raised the profile of religion as a factor in international relations. The last two US presidents have established three different offices in the State Department and White House that deal with religion globally and nationally. Within the US the recent presidential campaign set religion in high relief both as a rallying factor and as a factor in determining who enters the US. Dean Sterling will address the role of religion as a source of conflict and as a source of peace. He will discuss how religion can serve as a means to build bridges rather than walls and will share how Yale Divinity School is preparing future leaders for this new reality as an example of how communities of all types can flourish together.
