Dear DARE/entrepreneurship research colleagues,
Melissa Cardon, Nestlé Professor of Business Administration at University of Tennessee, will be coming to visit the Management and Organization department (SBE) at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam the first week of October (1-5). Melissa’s research focuses on unleashing human potential within entrepreneurial firms, including a dual interest in HR practices that maximize employee potential, and the emotional, relational, and cognitive aspects of entrepreneurs that contribute to optimizing their behavior and performance. Her recent work is on entrepreneurial passion and how entrepreneurs as individuals and within teams can unleash their passion to get the best results for themselves and their organizations. She is also the Field Editor for the Journal of Business Venturing and on the Editorial Boards of Entrepreneurship: Theory and Practice, Journal of Management Studies, and Human Resource Management Review.
Given this great opportunity, I’m putting out an invitation to join sessions with Melissa during this week.
First, I invite you to a ‘Meet the Editor’ session with Melissa from 12.00-14.00 on 1 October (location @VU). This session will give an opportunity to staff from VU as well as from other universities to ask questions about writing and discuss publishing opportunities. Please let me know if you plan to join this session.
Second, on the 4th, I invite you to a lunch seminar (12.00-13.00) in which Melissa will present about her current research (location @VU). This session will be open to everyone and include lunch. Please let me know if you would like to join.
Really looking forward to this very valuable visit by Melissa and hope to see you all at one or more events.
