UHV Business School, Invista partner to offer management seminar
Sept. 12, 2011 at 4:12 a.m.
Area business and civic leaders, government employees and executives at nonprofit organizations are invited to an upcoming seminar to learn how to apply the successful principles of a multinational business to their organizations.
The Oct. 6 seminar, "Unleashing the Entrepreneurial Potential of Your Organization," is co-sponsored by the University of Houston-Victoria School of Business Administration and Invista. Business owners and managers, civic leaders, executive directors and board members of nonprofit organizations, and representatives from government entities will learn more about the concepts of Market-Based Management.
The seminar will be in the Multi-Purpose Room of the UHV University Center, 3007 N. Ben Wilson St.
Tony Woodlief, former president of the MBM Institute, will teach the seminar. MBM is a framework for applying the principles that generate entrepreneurial initiative and prosperity in free societies.
Woodlief has worked extensively with the MBM Team at Koch Industries and its subsidiaries, including Invista, and is a frequent contributor to The Wall Street Journal and other publications. He is president of the Bill of Rights Institute, an organization dedicated to teaching young people the words and ideas of America's founders. He also is the former president of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, a center for economic research.
"We know that prosperous societies allow for entrepreneurial innovation that leads to wealth, health and happiness," Woodlief said. "It's only common sense that we should try to imitate those rules in the companies for which we work rather than apply the failed rules of dictatorial regimes."
Limited seating for the workshop is available, and interested participants should register by Sept. 26.
