We’ve missed you! We need you! The truth is, we’d really just love to see you again. We would like to invite you to a special CCSBE Homecoming event at the 2017 conference at Laval University this May.
As you may know, CCSBE is in the process of re- building its reach across Canada and we hosting a special Homecoming Workshop and networking session at this year’s 2017 conference to share and discuss new initiatives to revitalize our organization. Your input, experience and perspective would be greatly valued as an important contribution to this dialogue and hence the special invitation.
We are very excited about the conference at Laval this year, and have a very special line up of speakers – two of whom are profiled below, with more to follow:
Dr. Heidi Neck (Babson College)
Heidi is a Jeffry Timmons Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies at Babson (and incoming President of USASBE), who teaches entrepreneurship at the MBA and executive levels. Her research interests include entrepreneurship education, entrepreneurship inside organizations, and creative thinking. Neck is the lead author of Teaching Entrepreneurship: A Practice-Based Approach—a book written to help educators teach entrepreneurship in more experiential and engaging ways.
Dr. Ted Zoller (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill)
Ted is a Senior Kauffman Fellow and T.W. Lewis Clinical Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship and Director of the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies.
