It’s August, and the hot topic on everyone’s mind is the pandemic’s impact on football season. But today, we’re going to take the discussion down a different path. Because now more than ever, strong and innovative leadership is needed to handle the challenges we’re facing.
Joining Ken and Katie today to discuss leadership during the pandemic is Eric George, Executive Senior Associate Athletic Director and CFO at Mississippi State University Athletics. Having transitioned between two Power 5 athletic programs during the pandemic, Eric brings a unique perspective of intentional leadership. Katie will share her point of view as the leader of our firm’s higher education and collegiate athletics industry practices, while Ken moderates the discussion. And of course, everyone will talk about their brew of the month!
