LEWISBURG, Pa. — The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Bucknell University will host the seminar, "Coloring Outside the Lines," Thursday, April 5, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the Gallery Theatre (Room 301) of the Elaine Langone Center at Bucknell.

Jeff Tobe will lead the discussion about redefining everyday problems, tools to change the way you do business, getting clients to buy into your ideas, giving yourself the competitive edge, and how to risk implementing your ideas.

Dubbed by Insider Magazine as the guru of creativity in sales and marketing, Tobe began his advertising career in the Toronto area in 1981 and moved to Dallas, Texas, to begin his own successful agency two years later. He has been honored with five International Golden Pyramid Awards for creativity in promotions. He trains businesses and organizations around the world including such clients as IBM International, Pepsi Cola, and Nestle USA.

The cost for the seminar is $30 and includes a copy of Tobe's book Coloring Outside the Lines and a one-year subscription to Inc. magazine. Seating is limited; registration is required. Call 570-577-1249, email, or online at
