One of the roles of the Frierson Leadership Institute is to share cutting-edge knowledge about leadership and management practices with businesses, not-for-profit organizations, churches, government agencies, and educational institutions.

If your organization needs someone to fulfill a speaking engagement, the Frierson Leadership Institute can help you fill that need by securing a speaker from the UTC College of Business faculty. Please feel free to contact us via e-mail (Mark-Mendenhall@utc.edu) or at 423-425-4406. We can also help secure speakers for you from outside the Institute for speaking engagements.
