The Lviv Business School of the Ukrainian Catholic University on September 17, 2010, had the pleasure of hosting a master class led by noted US business consultant Adrian J. Slywotzky. Participating were 110 directors and business owners from all over Ukraine.

In addition to being a friend of the university, Mr. Slywotzky is also a major donor of the UCEF. And on May 1, 2011, his wife, Christina Balko Slywotzky, organized a fundraiser for the UCEF at Henrietta’s Kitchen in Cambridge, MA.

The Upside: The 7 Strategies for Turning Big Threats into Growth Breakthroughs, a 2007 bestseller written by Mr. Slywotzky, was recently translated into Ukrainian and presented while he was in Ukraine. Mr. Slywotzky has had a number of articles published in Business Week and Fortune.
