As Director of the Center for Corporate Learning, I produce and manage the Clemson University Leadership Summit. My priority is finding the best business speakers, the best industry trainers, the best talent from the University to examine pillars of leadership like Leading and Motivating, Objectivity, Creativity, Courage, Integrity and Inclusion. I facilitate seminars and advanced certificate programs like the Clemson/Life Cycle Engineering Reliability Engineering Certificate program, and our Green Belt and Black Belt Lean 6 Sigma. The Clemson Mini-MBA provides an executive overview on best practices for improving business performance across leadership, marketing, project execution, finance for non-finance folks, and business strategy. We meet on the first Friday of the month for a full day for each of these stand-alone sessions. The Clemson University Annual Global Tire Industry Conference in Hilton Head has a 30-year history and continues to grow.
