Students in the IBC study work together.

Lynn University’s College of Business and Management will host its second annual Business Symposium Wednesday, Nov. 14. This one-day forum invites the business community, educators and students to explore connections and advancements in global enterprise.

Attendees will learn from industry leaders on the hottest topics facing businesses today, including cybersecurity, data analytics, consumer trends, corporate culture, cryptocurrency, the future of retail and more. Business Symposium will offer two keynote speaker presentations, more than 20 interactive breakout sessions and networking opportunities.

Headlining the event is Cynthia Trudell, former executive vice president and chief human resources officer at PepsiCo, and David Clarke, global chief experience officer and principal at PricewaterhouseCoopers. Trudell’s presentation is part of the Dively Frontiers in Globalization Lecture Series, made possible by the George S. Dively Foundation and sponsored in part by the R.A. Ritter Foundation.

As PepsiCo’s former EVP and CHRO, Trudell managed the company’s global human resources and human capital management strategy for more than 10 years. Clarke serves as PwC’s global CxO and is also the creator of PwC Global Experience Consulting—a platform that brings business consultants, eXperience designers and technology specialists together to create value for clients.

In celebration of both Global Entrepreneurship Week and International Education Week, two academic conferences will participate in this year’s conference: the Academy of Business Research and the International Organization of Social Sciences and Behavioral Research. Attendees can also visit the South Florida Franchising Expo where exhibitors will showcase franchising opportunities in partnership with the Sunshine State Franchising Association.

Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m., and sessions will take place at Lynn’s Mohammed Indimi International Business Center and the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $60.

Lynn’s Business Symposium is sponsored by The Harcourt M. & Virginia W. Sylvester Foundation, Boca Raton Airport Authority, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Florida Power & Light, Northwestern Mutual and Office Depot.
