From March 9-10, the NetKAL VII Fellows gathered at the USC campus for the Fellowship program’s second weekend session. This weekend was based on enhancing communication and leadership.
Different from the ropes courses of the first session, the second weekend for NetKAL VII consisted of extensive workshops facilitated by USC Marshall School of Business professor, Dr. Gregory Patton. Dr. Patton is a Professor of Clinical Management Communication in the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California and is an expert in communication, interpersonal and leadership effectiveness. His discussion topics for session two ranged from executive development and growth, self branding, and team formation. Through individual and team exercises, Dr. Patton’s workshops set a foundation for not only enhancing the communication and leadership of individual Fellows, but also of the NetKAL VII class as a team.
The weekend was also enriched with another distinguished dinner at USC’s Davidson Conference Center. The guest speaker of the night was Mich Mathews, former CMO and SVP of Microsoft. While at Microsoft, Mathews oversaw the company’s global marketing function, spanning a diverse set of household brands including Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, Xbox and Bing.
