Dennis Duchon, E.J. Faulkner professor of management, will present “Making Better Decisions,” and Tammy Beck, associate dean and associate professor of management, will present “Making Work Matter: Finding Passion at Work” at the lunches in Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska. These events are designed to introduce professionals to hot topics in a best practices format and provide businesses with ideas for professional and corporate growth.
“Today’s business professionals face complex challenges in a world of fast-paced change,” said Donde Plowman, James Jr. and Susan Stuart, endowed dean of the College of Business Administration. “Our power lunch series provides a place for cutting-edge ideas about business to meet the challenges of everyday practice.”
