Wells Fargo Advisors will serve as the lead business sponsor in collaborating with Ursuline to conduct a series of conferences and luncheon events that focus on entrepreneurship, leadership, and women business leaders. This collaboration initiative with Wells Fargo Advisors will include three upcoming leadership events conducted by the Center of Excellence. The first luncheon event will be held at Landerhaven (Mayfield Heights, OH) on Saturday December 15, 2012, from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM. This event will include several professional guest speakers that will focus on topics related to entrepreneurship and women business leaders.
Dr. Debra L. Fleming, Executive Director of Business Programs and Director of the MBA Programs is working with other MBA business professors at Ursuline on the development of the Center’s activities. Rita Singh, Ursuline’s adjunct MBA faculty member, will serve as the Coordinator of the Center. Fleming and Singh emphasized that “by combining all of the MBA professors’ extensive business networks with Ursuline’s academic research base, we aim to increase awareness of the challenges facing entrepreneurial leaders and strive to address these by bringing together networks and resources so business leaders can receive the support they need to grow their businesses or to enhance their careers.”
The Center of Excellence at Ursuline will provide benefits to its sponsors and opportunities for business leaders, especially women business leaders, to benefit from the lessons learned by experienced entrepreneurial leaders through mentoring, networking opportunities and a conference/seminar series of events. The Center’s online resources will also offer business leaders and their supporters a variety of resources, including a collaborative signpost system to Ursuline’s sponsors and an opportunity for business leaders to showcase their success stories to inspire the next generation of ethical and entrepreneurial business leaders in Northeast Ohio.
