Mar 14, 2013 | ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. — Bradford-area business leaders are invited to join St. Bonaventure University’s School of Business for a professional development seminar to look at how companies can be poised for the war over good jobs.
The Business Matters Breakfast will be held from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. Wednesday, April 3, at The Bradford Club on Boylston Street.
In a provocative talk titled “The Role of Business in the Coming World War,” Dr. Pierre Balthazard, dean of the university’s School of Business, will describe how good jobs bring human development, prosperity and peace while our stagnant global economy and chronic unemployment may ultimately bring countries to war.
A global “good job” war is already upon us, Balthazard says, and there’s no time to waste. The cities, regions and countries that act first — those that focus everything they have on creating good jobs — are the ones that will win.
“As a businessperson, educator, community leader, or entrepreneur, what is your role? We’d love to have current and emerging business leaders join us for this important discussion,” said Balthazard.
Balthazard, who joined the university last June, is an international scholar whose lifelong work has been to motivate business students to gain a global mindset. His research focuses on the design and investigation of individual, group, leadership, and organizational diagnosis instruments, systems that support collaboration, leadership development, and evidence-based processes across time and distance using technology.
Most recently, he has been examining neuroscience as an alternative to traditional psychometric approaches to leadership assessment and leadership development. His research project has received global attention from top business publications around the world, including Business Week, Wall Street Journal, The Globe and Mail, The Times of London, and The Financial Times among others.
A breakfast buffet begins at 7:30 a.m. with the program to start at 8 a.m.
Space is limited and reservations are required by March 28 online at www.sbu.edu/BusinessMatters
