"Inspiration Matters!"


Kelly Bean is Chair of the UNICON board, and is Associate Dean of Executive Education at UCLA’s Anderson School where she designs, develops and often teaches executive education programs.

Dear UNICON Colleagues,

We are all entering into the busy fall delivery season.   But before we fully immerse ourselves in the exhilarating rush of our business demands, I urge each of you involved in University-based Executive Education to pause for a moment and reflect on the incredible work we do for our clients.    Not many people get to experience what we do:  watching our clients grow and develop, transform their businesses, and develop the leaders of tomorrow.  As Executive Education providers, we get to do this every day.   We provide the platform for people to experience knowledge.  

Who inspires you?  When was the last time you reflected on that question?   As the board chair of UNICON, I’d like to invite you and your teams to experiment with us this year.  How can UNICON help inspire you?   

We encourage each of you to tell us your stories, to participate in our webinars, to watch our new video blogs, to attend conferences, and maybe to start a regional network of your UNICON colleagues.   In short, we invite you to be inspired!
