BUFFALO, N.Y. — Leaders from the business, nonprofit and academic worlds will come together on May 2 for a conference hosted by the University at Buffalo School of Management’s Center for Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness (CLOE) and Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL).
The daylong event, “Leadership Under Pressure: Rising to Today’s Business Challenges,” will give managers the tools to go above and beyond when crises occur.
The conference will begin at 8 a.m. at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center, 153 Franklin St., Buffalo.
“Western New York has faced an extraordinary number of crises during the past year, along with the post-pandemic challenges of talent acquisition and retention, supply chain disruptions and a looming recession,” says Ananth Iyer, professor and dean of the UB School of Management. “This conference will bring focus to these types of situations, with leaders who have had to step up in these scenarios, as well as experts who will discuss key leadership topics.”
Conference highlights will include:
Additional breakout sessions will feature insights from business owners and entrepreneurs, the latest leadership research from UB School of Management faculty and lessons from top-level industry experts.
The event will build upon the success of previous leadership conferences, which have offered opportunities to learn about leading ethically, the future of leadership, diversity and inclusion, the power of people-oriented leadership, social innovation and entrepreneurship, and emerging research and how to put that research into practice.
Tickets are $199 per person, with a discounted rate for UB students, faculty and staff. For a full schedule and registration information, visit management.buffalo.edu/leadership2023.
