Sprint Nextel CEO’s Talk Live on Web
Dan Hesse, MBA ’77, session on the prolific growth of wireless available live and on-demand
Graduates of the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management attending Cornell University’s annual reunion this weekend have the opportunity to spend time with someone, who has been neck-deep in wireless technology since its inception—Dan Hesse, CEO of Sprint Nextel Corp.
Hesse, who earned his MBA from Johnson in 1977, will lead a professional development session on Saturday, June 9, titled "The Prolific Growth of Wireless – Good or Bad?" The session is from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Sage Hall, Room B09, and also will be available live and on-demand following the event, via the Cornell University Web site.
Hesse, a decades-long veteran of the telecommunications industry, was the inaugural recipient of the L. Joseph Thomas Leadership Award, presented in January 2012 in New York City. At that time, Hesse described overall declines in American business, even as wireless become the most rapidly adopted technology in history. (Read the full coverage in Enterprise Online.) In his June 9 session, Hesse will lead a discussion on “the good, the bad, and the ugly” effects of this exploding technology, and also propose future key public policy issues around wireless technology.
