Through the Wisdom and Chocolate Speakers Series, attendees can interact with nationally known entrepreneurs who share what they have learned in establishing their businesses. The speakers all convey vibrant messages about the value of loving one's business and how to make dreams achievable. Those messages are made sweeter with servings of chocolate desserts! The Saint Martin's School of Business sponsors Wisdom and Chocolate in partnership with the Washington Center for Women in Business at the Thurston Economic Development Council.
