   Event Description :

Jerry Greenfield (of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream) and his long-time friend and business partner Ben Cohen are the men behind one of the most talked-about, and least conventional, success stories in American business. Today, Greenfield's official title at the company is Co-Founder. He is involved in promoting the social and environmental initiatives that Ben & Jerry's undertakes. He also is President of the Ben & Jerry's Foundation.

Greenfield will be visiting Rhodes to offer a behind the scenes look at Ben & Jerry's. His speech is titled "An Evening of Entrepreneurial Spirit, Social Responsibility and Radical Business Philosophy." Free and open to the public, this event is sponsored by the Rhodes College Student Lecture Board.

There will be an ice cream reception with free Ben & Jerry's immediately following the lecture. All attendees are welcome to stay.
