The July Regis University MBA / MSOL Networking event is pleased to feature Karl Dakin, author and Executive Director of the Sullivan Chair for Free Enterprise at Regis, who will speak on the topic of his new Kindle book, “Everyone’s an Expert.”
Thursday, July 14 – 6pm to 8pm MDT
Lowell Campus, Main Hall, Room 333

The book that Dakin co-authored couldn’t come at a better time, as our country struggles with high levels of unemployment and as a result, experienced professionals are redefining their career options, future opportunities and business goals.
At this month’s networking event, Dakin will discuss the trend away from classical employment and toward project participation, which will change how we work and how we get work. This trend will result in the growing importance for people to establish and be recognized for expertise on particular topics of knowledge.
Individuals who become proficient at sharing their knowledge will become sought after to participate in projects where that knowledge is needed.
Mr. Dakin will discuss these techniques and methods within the context of entrepreneurship and the forthcoming programs initiated by the Sullivan Chair at Regis University. These programs include the newly launched Regis Entrepreneur Club and the formation of the Colorado Capital Congress, both of which held their inaugural meetings in June.
The Regis Entrepreneur Club focuses on facilitating Regis University student participation in ‘live business projects’ where students will have opportunities to learn through immersion in the launch and operation of businesses.
The Colorado Capital Congress public forum focused on improving Colorado’s capital markets, inviting business owners, vendors of capital services, government officials, state representatives and educators to receive a briefing on the structure and process of the forum. “The dialogue of meeting participants was filled with candid statements regarding the capital crisis in Colorado,” explains Dakin, “on a need to focus on real solutions and to avoid fanciful wish lists, praise for the formation of the Congress and optimism for a positive outcome.”
