The Union League's Business Leadership Forum has Invited Wharton Philly Club Members to a Business Leadership Symposium on Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
The topic is Management Lessons from Ben Franklin.
Dr. Blaine McCormick is an award-winning management professor at the Hankamer School of Business at Baylor University where he serves as Chair of the Department of Management. For many years, Dr. McCormick taught business acumen in the first-year business course to almost 500 students each semester. In the spring of 2009, Inc. magazine named his course one of the nine best entrepreneurship courses in the United States.
A nationally recognized scholar on the business practices of Benjamin Franklin, Dr. McCormick is interviewed frequently across all forms of media including the Forbes, Time, public radio, and ABC World News Tonight. He often travels to developing countries to teach business lessons to undereducated entrepreneurs using only a bottle of Coca-Cola as a teaching aid. Ask him about it sometime. Despite his successes with Coca-Cola, he serves on the board of Waco’s own Dr Pepper Museum & Free Enterprise Institute.
A native Texan, Blaine grew up working in the cotton fields of West Texas. Before joining the Baylor faculty, he worked in Dallas and Plano for ARCO Oil & Gas Company as a human resource management professional. He lives in Waco with his wife of thirty years, Sarah.
