UJ plans Character in Leadership Conference
The University of Jamestown is hosting its annual Character in Leadership Conference. The event is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8, in Harold Newman Arena, as well as various locations throughout campus. It is free and open to the public.
“The 2020 Character in Leadership speaker line-up is slated to address many of the issues facing leaders during this time of uncertainty," said said Liz Hunt, director of character in leadership at UJ. "No matter our leadership role, the current times call for leadership fueled by empathy, authenticity, and hope. Each speaker brings experience, understanding and practical advice as a front-line leader.”
Greg Hawks, a corporate cultural specialist and keynote speaker at the conference, will explore how to shape an environment where everyone gets to contribute their best, daily.
“Mr. Hawks is a power-house of dynamic energy and creative vision for leadership," Hunt said. "Attendees will leave with solid leadership practice ideas and a sense of empowerment to meet the daily demands of leading in a complex world.”
Breakout sessions will each cover leadership ideas and experiences related to various professional fields. Breakout speakers include Blaze Culliton, ACE continuous improvement leader at Collins Aerospace; Tonya Perkins, administrator of the North Dakota State Hospital, and Dr. Laura Lynch, professor and director of instrumental music, at the University of Jamestown.
