Bill Hermann '72, managing partner of Plante & Moran, presented the 2007 University of Detroit Mercy Business Alumni Week keynote speech.

Hermann used quotations from the Harry Potter books to emphasize the importance of making ethical and beneficial choices in both career and life. He cited Professor Dumbledore's maxim, "It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."

In his address, Hermann stressed the necessity of choosing to think globally. "Today's businesspeople need to have an idea what people around the world are thinking and doing in regard to the various issues facing us… the perspectives of people around the world are really going to have an impact on us as we move forward."

Hermann also offered advice to students including analyzing potential employers closely, and considering remaining in the Great Lakes region.

John Staudenmaier, S.J.

John Staudemaier, S.J., explores "Confronting Evil" as part of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, a method of prayer for reclaiming the violent places, those in one's personal life and in the world where we live.  This UDM cast is one of a series on the Spiritual Exercises.

"Ignatius teaches a discipline in which I try to come close to the violences which burden me, violence done to me, violence done by me, and violence done in the world where I live. The violent parts of our past and our present reality are uninhabitable and toxic."

"The Spiritual Exercise teaches a method for reclaiming those uninhabitable parts of my self and world. Coming close so that I can stay in the violated places until I have been met there by God and those places can lose their toxicities and become part of the fabric of my life again. All this, however, presumes basic emotional health, which shows itself in my capacity to be moved by beauty and by sorrow."

John Staudenmaier, S.J.

John Staudenmaier, S.J., explores the implications of St. Ignatius' "inner geography of prayer" in this talk from his special series on the Jesuit Spiritual Exercises.

"The core method for prayer in the Spiritual Exercise is that one tries to find one's way to the place where one desires to pray now and, when I find my way to that place, I try to stay there "until I have been satisfied" before moving on to a new place."

"This method applies to where I place my body (in the literal sense) and where I give my attention. This discipline of seeking the place of heart's desire and trying to stay there until I have been satisfied makes a powerful discipline for living ordinary life as well as for finding guidance in prayer."
