University-Corporate Partnerships: Case Studies, Best Practices and Lessons Learned
Presented by Kathleen Wilson, MPA
In this session we’ll look at the challenges and benefits of partnering with a University on employee development and talent management initiatives, some unique solutions, and lessons learned about what it takes to positively impact individual performance, team effectiveness, business productivity and corporate culture. Over the last eight years, Kathleen and her team have worked closely with a variety of organizations, including Fortune 500 companies, public sector agencies, non-profit organizations, and small-medium sized businesses to design, develop and deliver custom corporate training.
In addition to acquiring some proven tips and techniques, participants will have the opportunity to work together in small groups to resolve sticky issues and thorny problems presented in the case studies.
