Event Details

As an entrepreneur, you set the course for what happens in your shop. But even working solo, ultimately nothing can happen without the crucial engagement of others, from customers to everyone in between. "Vision", "momentum", "teamwork" are easily noted talismans. But as experience early and routinely shows, there is more than wishing to make things so.

Our concluding speakers in our quarter-long series of programs commemorating Booth ER's 25th anniversary year, management experts Bill Burnett and Jim Vahle, will bring us some ultimate reality checks for the paths to desired results. Their breadth of exposure to organizational challenges is exceptional, only exceeded by their knack at focusing on a situation's core truths for the clarity to most effectively direct the necessary efforts. With this determined, the rest is up to you!


Entrepreneurial Roundtable members, facuty and students of Booth: $15 thru December 7, then $20.

General public: $20 thru December 7, then $25.
