Lessons for Leaders from Business History
Gary Hoover, entrepreneur-in-residence at the Herb Kelleher Center for Entrepreneurship at the McCombs School, is unabashedly in love with the history of business. Visit his blog for a taste of why he believes history matters.
He is truly a master storyteller and over the next few months he will be sharing “energized lectures” on a variety of business history topics at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center, room 201, on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. The events are free and open to the public. I’ll see you there?
