Keeping up with emerging trends in the business world is difficult, but itmay prove a little easier for area business professionals, educators and students attending the third annual Business and Leadership Symposium, Sept. 26 and 27, 2007, on the Fort Hays State University campus.
The event, sponsored by the FHSU College of Business and Leadership, will provide a forum for exchanging ideas about identifying emerging trends, new approaches and issues involved in various disciplines of business and leadership.
This year's symposium is expected to have 50-70 professionals to present research papers, student papers, case studies, work-in-progress research and reports on related topics in the fields of business and leadership.
"This event provides not only a great opportunity for educators and professionals, but for FHSU students as well," said Dr. M.A. Zainuba, director of the Business and Leadership Symposium. "It will provide students a chance to gain an understanding of how professional presentations are made, how question and answer sessions take place, and how people defend and argue their ideas. It will also provide an excellent networking opportunity."
Submissions to be considered for presentation at the symposium will be accepted through May 15 and can be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
By submitting work for the symposium, professionals also get considered for two publication outlets: "Journal of Business and Leadership: Research, Practice and Teaching" and "Business and Leadership Symposium Proceedings."
The event cost is $225 if registered by Sept. 17 and $250 after that date. Doctoral students may attend for $100, and the event is free to all FHSU students.
