The TripAdvisor event was awesome

#Kudos to the #leadership of the University of Redlands School of Business for developing the 21st Century Leadership Speaker series, in which a group of #influencers (one at a time) shares the lessons he or she learned while #leading his or her #organization.
My MBA students and I had the opportunity to attend one of the events in the series: TripAdvisor And the Rise of Consumer-Driven #Travel. It was hosted by Dean Tom Horan, with his guest, TripAdvisor #CEO, Steve Kaufer.
The event was supported by a classy and a dedicated team of people who made the event a success. #Kudos to all.
According to the U of R’s website, the series is a part of Dean Horan’s “strategic approach to advancing the school’s mission” in order “to enhance student-centeredness and success”.
The talk was beneficial and helpful to the audience collectively. As a teacher, I am pleased. And I am certain my students have benefited from it too. Dr. Horan as a host and Mr. Kaufer as a guest were gracious.
It was great seeing Dr. G. Keith Roberts, Pamela, Sean, Sue, Heather, and the many nameless others.
It was also great meeting the talented Katie Olson.
