Our speaker this week was Noah Alpert, the founder of Noah’s Bagels and now an author and business consultant. Noah has led an interesting life, creating six businesses (four successful) and picking up significant wisdom in the process.

After an exciting career at the University of Wisconsin, he started his first company, the Alper Wooden Bowl Company.

From buy diet pills this humble (and successful) beginning he went on to found the immensely successful Noah’s Bagels, which spread stores up and down the West Coast. He eventually sold this business and wrote the book “Business Mensch”, and is

now living happily ever after, writing, traveling and spreading the word that “Doing good is good for business”.

Thank you Noah for a great talk!
