Jackson Leadership Lecture Series

First Thursday
Jackson Leadership Lecture Series

Featuring keynote speeches on leadership topics

7:30a.m. – First Thursday of every month

The Jackson Leadership Lecture Series will feature prominent speakers on leadership topics from key executives in the business community.  It will be a breakfast lecture series held the first Thursday of every month for alumni, friends and students of Dunwoody College of Technology.

Every month a new program will be presented.  Each program will feature an approximately 20 minute keynote speech by a leader in the business community, followed by a 10 minute Q&A session.  A light breakfast will be provided. Registration for the Jackson Lecture Series is free to students (though pre-registration is required) and the program will cost $20.00 for other guests.

The Jackson Lecture Series will help educate Dunwoody students, alumni and friends in leadership development and provide an opportunity to market Dunwoody’s newly created Technical Leadership Academies.  It is an excellent opportunity for not only continuing education, but for networking amongst the attendees.

The Lecture Series is named in honor of C. Charles Jackson, former Dunwoody College of Technology Board of Trustee member, leader in the Twin Cities business community and philanthropist.  Through the C. Charles Jackson Foundation initial support for the lecture series became possible.
