West Coast to Welcome Ross Professor’s Talk on Innovation


Innovation is a hot topic in business. Everybody wants it, but how exactly do you encourage it?

Jeffrey Sanchez-Burks

Michigan Ross friends and fans on the West Coast have a great opportunity to explore this topic during a talk by Ross Professor Jeffrey Sanchez-Burks at a free event March 5 in the Seattle area.

The event is sponsored by Ross’ acclaimed Executive MBA Program, which offers courses in Los Angeles as well as Ann Arbor. Sanchez-Burks’ talk will give attendees a sample of the newly expanded Leadership Development Program, a critical component of the Ross EMBA.

A thought leader on the challenges of leading in a global economy, Sanchez-Burks will speak on “Practical Creativity: Enhancing Workplace Innovation.” He’ll share workable, research-based insights into how you can draw on the untapped creative potential in your organization. Sanchez-Burks is the director of the EMBA Leadership Development Program, a comprehensive series of workshops, guest speakers, team activities, and coaching sessions fully integrated into the Ross EMBA experience.

In addition to the talk by Sanchez-Burks, the event includes a cocktail reception. It starts at 6:30 p.m. PST March 5 at the Westin Bellevue, 15 minutes from Seattle. Preregister for the event and learn how you can enable others to make better use of the knowledge and perspective they already possess.
