With COVID-19 impacting all live events, the Albers Executive Speaker Series has launched a podcast edition called The Leadership Playbook.
The Leadership Playbook asks top executives from the business world’s most recognizable brands and companies about the stories behind their success, their leadership secrets, and the biggest obstacles they’ve faced and overcome.
Candid, often humorous, and always inspiring, the show consists of six 45-minute to one-hour episodes per season, one in Fall and the other in Spring.
Three episodes are interviews with business leaders hosted by Joseph M. Phillips, Dean of the Albers School of Business and Economics. The other three are throwback episodes from the some of the most memorable Speaker Series talks.
Due to the ongoing concerns and restrictions with in-person gatherings due to COVID-19, we are not able to host a Crab Feed in 2021. While we are very sorry to not be able to continue the long-standing tradition that was established in 2002, we hope you will join us for the other opportunities we have created for our alumni to support student scholarships, which are shown below.
Thanks to the generosity of the many alumni and friends that have supported the Crab Feed in the past, the Albers Alumni Scholarship Endowment generates over $8,000 per year, which goes directly to Albers undergraduate and graduate students. In an effort to maintain the level of scholarship support we have provided in recent years, we are looking to raise an additional $12,000 - $20,000 to continue to support Albers students. Due to the financial challenges so many families have experienced this year, the number of students needing scholarship support has increased significantly.
Join us and help support the next generation of leaders.
