Grant Copeland, WORX President and Chief Creative Officer, joined Definitive Technology Group Co-Founder Patrick Ney for a Fireside Chat discussion with the Dean of Post University’s Malcolm Baldrige School of Business, Dr. Jeremi Bauer.
Bauer moderated an in-depth discussion about Humanizing Entrepreneurship between Copeland, Ney, a crowd of over 100 Business School students and professors, and an online audience watching via Post’s streaming video feed.
Over the course of 90 minutes, Copeland and Ney provided personal stories, business anecdotes, best practices, strategic suggestions – and self-deprecating humor. Both company leaders covered a wide range of “humanizing” business topics that focused on Failures, Risk and Regrets – toggling from financing their first businesses and growing in competitive industries, to striking a personal/professional balance and identifying your value system.
Like Post University, Definitive Technology Group (DTG) is a WORX client partner. While the company is based in greater Boston, DTG partner Ney is a Waterbury native. DTG is a leader in the design, development and delivery of mobile workstations and battery systems that improve workflow efficiency for the medical, warehousing and retail point-of-sale industries.
The Fireside Chat was the first of several sessions to be put on by Post University’s business school that will offer the perspectives of business leaders from the greater Waterbury area.
The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business at Post University has established a strong reputation for high-quality teaching, collaboration and outreach spanning a wide array of functional business disciplines including Accounting, Finance, Management, Marketing, and Human Resource Management and Sport Management.
The business school is named for Malcolm Baldrige, who was the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Waterbury-based brass company Scovill, Inc., and later served as the United States Secretary of Commerce from 1981-1987.
