The role of corporate culture will be the primary focus at the 2004 University of Tampa Fellows Forum. Presentations will explore how basic beliefs and values can affect success or failure in today’s business climate. The event will be Tuesday, March 16, 7:30-10 a.m. at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center.

Speakers will include:

  • John Allison, CEO of BB&T Corp., a successful North Carolina-based bank that is buying Republic Bank in St. Petersburg.
  • August Busch III, Chairman of Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc., which includes the world’s largest brewing company and one of the largest theme park operations in the country.
  • Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, Associate Dean for Executive Programs at Yale University’s School of Management, and an expert on corporate culture and governance issues.

The Forum annually features nationally recognized company chief executives who deliver their perspectives on a timely subject. Its objective is to showcase the University and the John H. Sykes College of Business, and to highlight the University's commitment to the Tampa Bay business community. The format is designed to stimulate and challenge intellectual thought, leading to a meaningful question-and-answer session.
