Brown Bag Matinee: Change and Leadership featuring Tom Peters

Fortune calls Tom Peters the ur-guru of management and compares him to Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman. The Economist says he’s the “uber-guru.” And his unconventional views led Business Week to describe him as businesses’ “best friend and worst nightmare.”

Due to the Sept. 11 tragedy, the original live satellite broadcast of Peters was rescheduled to a later date. Since we were unable to reschedule this broadcast at Penn, we have been provided with a videotape of the program. Peters speaks for 50 minutes. After that, participants should feel free to leave whenever their schedule dictates.

- May 14, noon to 1:30 p.m., free, including popcorn
