In live interviews from a Milwaukee Rotary Club meeting, Richie talks to six business leaders from various industries about their response to COVID-19. Taking listener questions, they discuss the government’s response to COVID-19 and what comes next. 

The show begins with a conversation with Jim Barry, President of The Barry Company about the state of commercial real estate. Then, Richie talks to Todd Bentley, President of Bentley World Packaging, putting this pandemic in perspective, considering the history of the company that’s been family owned since 1848. Next up is Mark Kannenberg, President of RBP Chemical Technology, to talk about chemical sales during these times. 

He’s followed by Darren Miller, President of JM Construction, who discusses how their projects are proceeding despite COVID-19. Michael Sheppard, Managing Director of IronwoodDrive Financial Group, joined the show, letting us in on what it’s like to make financial decisions right now. Finally, Julie Tolan, EVP and Owner of Lauber Business Partners talks leadership and consulting virtually and how her company has adapted.

It’s a full show, packed with interesting experiences that Milwaukee business leaders have had in these unprecedented times.
