Winners & Losers 3/16/17

Bob Kimball
UWF marketing professor Dr. Bob Kimball is taking his instruction to a new audience: inmates at the Escambia County Work Release Center. In February, Kimball conducted a two-day sales course, Bob’s Sales Camp, with 24 inmates participating in the Pathways for Change men’s residential treatment program. Pathways for Change operates a faith-based addictions treatment program for men who want to overcome destructive behaviors, attitudes, and habits that prevent them from living a life free from crime and incarceration. Kimball plans to repeat the course with a new cohort of inmates every 90 days.
