Business Over Breakfast Webinar Series with Emory Executive Education
Grab your morning coffee and join us each Thursday morning from 9-10 a.m. ET for Business over Breakfast with Emory Executive Education ─ a free webinar series, where Goizueta Business School faculty address the latest trends and current issues in business.

The Economy and Me (June 4):
Join Tom Smith, Goizueta Business School Finance Professor, for a discussion on the latest economic news, the impact of coronavirus, what people are saying and what it means for you.

Decoding the Analytics of COVID: Making sense of models, data, and predictions (June 11):
What goes into the epidemiological models that guide our national and state responses? What are they intended to tell us? What can we, and can’t we, conclude from models? What causes “false positives” and “false negatives,” and how can we use them to evaluate various COVID tests? What does the data tell us about progress in responding to this disease? Get answers to these questions and more with Goizueta Business School Professor Patrick Noonan.

Technology and Privacy (June 18):
Technology has fundamentally changed the marketing landscape. Customer insights can now be gleaned from a myriad of data sources. But, at what potential costs? David A. Schweidel, professor of marketing at Goizueta Business School, will explore the benefits and consequences of 24/7 data collection for both businesses and consumers. He will discuss where we stand today and what this portends for the future of marketing and consumer privacy.

Leading Remote Teams During a Crisis (June 25):
The transition to remote work presents different challenges for team leaders and members. Leadership professor Peter Topping will discuss the adjustments that team leaders can make to enhance virtual team effectiveness and performance.
