Come to Kirkwood, Missouri – aka the Greentree City – this month for two of its annual hallmark events. The first is the Greentree Festival on September 14-16. This 3-day festival features delicious food, art and craft booths showcasing the work of gifted artists, some of the best music bands the St. Louis area has to offer, and much more. There is literally something for everyone at the Greentree Festival. The second event is the Kirkwood Rotary Ramble on September 22. The Ramble, a 5K & 10K run/walk through the tree-lined streets of Kirkwood, is a festive and fun-filled way to burn off extra calories from the prior week’s festival while doing good for the community. All proceeds from the Ramble, put on by the Kirkwood Rotary Club, are given to local charities and community services.
The National Security Agency has asked Brookings Executive Education (BEE) to provide instruction on conflict resolution to executives at NSA Headquarters, Fort Meade, MD. BEE’s goal is to support the men and women who serve our country with cutting-edge leadership courses, either at the Brookings facility in Washington, DC, or onsite at the requesting agency. The BEE instructor retained for this purpose is Paul Paese, of PMC. Paul will teach “Strategies for Conflict Resolution” at Fort Meade later this month, and again in 2019. Paul is excited to have the opportunity to work with the distinguished executives at NSA.
The editors of the American Journal of Business have re-appointed PMC President, Paul Paese, to their editorial advisory board. AJB focuses on how research-based theories and models support management practices, and offers practical advice on a wide range of business and management problems. The journal’s audience is the wider business community, including both practitioners and academic scholars. The role of the advisory board is to provide strategic guidance on the content and direction of the Journal. As a professor-turned-consultant, Paul sees this role as fitting perfectly with his background and expertise, and he is happy to continue serving on the board.
