Speaker's Edge 2020

2020 started off nicely with a major opportunity. I traveled to Ole Miss to serve as one of 5 instructors of 122 graduate students in Business, Accounting, and Law. I helped students improve their ideas and performance in three categories: Marketplace Pitch, Team Pitch, and Ethical Dilemma. The class intensives culminated in a 2-day tournament called Speaker’s Edge.

This annual competition allowed graduate students to compete for industry professionals, retirees, and alumni from across America. A student I had the pleasure of working with, Bea Tisher, was named tournament champion and received the cash prize. I am so proud of her, and of everyone who improved by leaps and bounds during this intense process. I love watching people grow!
