Business - Alumni Events

Borders, Blockbuster, Circuit City, Polaroid...all iconic companies, all devastated because they struggled with exploiting existing markets while exploring new ones. It’s a tough balance, but it’s a necessary survival strategy. And leadership plays a pivotal role.

Join Kurt Bock, CEO of COUNTRY Financial, and Raj Echambadi, associate dean and professor of business administration, for a conversation about critical leadership traits for spearheading change. They’ll also discuss how to build an innovative culture—and how ambidextrous, nimble leadership can foster change and innovation.

Don't miss this engaging conversation and opportunity to connect.

Lunch and CPE credit provided.

RSVP by Tuesday, May 13th, 2014.
