'Life Is Like a Box of Chocolates' lecture teaches decision making

Professional speaker Steve Weber will use the persona of “Forrest Gump” to teach audiences how to become more decisive and to make the right decisions in his presentation “Life is Like a Box of Chocolates!” at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24, in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

Using the life lessons, stories, and the wit and wisdom from the movie Forrest Gump, Weber explores issues of identity, integrity, opportunity, motivation, and civility, while challenging audience members to reflect on their own attitudes, leadership, and sense of personal responsibility. He contends that with a strong moral compass, single-minded determination, and a “never-give-up” attitude, anyone can attain greater success, make their own luck, overcome adversity, and turn obstacles into opportunities. 

This presentation is part of the Penn State Berks Arts and Lecture series. For more information, contact the Office of Campus Life at 610-396-6076.
