Business professors speak in Kansas City

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

LAWRENCE — Two professors from the KU School of Business will speak this spring at the Central Exchange in Kansas City. Clint Chadwick, associate professor of strategy and human resource management, will present “Managing People for High Performance,” on Feb. 7. Chadwick will talk about principles of strategic human resource management and how to demonstrate your individual value to employers.

Laura Poppo, Edmund P. Learned professor in business, will speak at the Central Exchange on March 13. She will discuss the challenges of offices incorporating multiple generations of employees and the changes that may need to happen to accommodate the new work place.

The Central Exchange is an organization that helps women reach their full personal and professional potential. It provides lectures, promotes community involvement and highlights the careers of successful local women in business. It is more than 30 years old and four years ago the Central Exchange Education Foundation was formed. This not-for-profit organization is sponsoring the lectures through a grant from the University of Kansas School of Business.

Chadwick’s presentation on Thursday is from 7:45 a.m. until 9:15 a.m. and includes a continental breakfast before the lecture. Register online.
