Wednesday, Feb. 5, noon-1:30 p.m.
The thought of Ben Stein speaking to a large group of people brings to mind the economist, author and actor’s big break into Hollywood: “Bueller. Bueller. Bueller.” As the monotone teacher in the 1986 comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Stein bored his students into submission with his lesson on supply-side economics. In reality, people line up for his passionate opinion on economics and politics as both a columnist and guest commentator on television news. Stein is just part of the line-up of guests for Oklahoma State University’s Center for Executive and Professional Development speaker series in Tulsa and Oklahoma City. Stein will speak at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, 1700 N.E. 63rd St., in Oklahoma City at the Executive Management Briefings luncheon, noon-1:30 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 5. Stein then will stop at the Renaissance Hotel, 6808 S. 107th East Ave., in Tulsa for the Tulsa Business Forums luncheon from noon-1:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6. Registration is $85 per person at each event. To register online, go to www.cepd.okstate.edu.
