The Reeves School of Business (RSB) at Methodist University hosted its Third Annual Reeves School of Business Symposium and Awards Dinner, formerly known as the Annual Economic Outlook and Stock Market Symposium, which has been a longstanding tradition in southeastern North Carolina.
The Reeves School of Business and Methodist University continue to
evolve and build upon on our reputation of excellence. In our pursuit
of continual quality improvement we have recently made some
organizational changes that more effectively and efficiently align our
resources. We have consolidated the Center for Entrepreneurship's Fall
Symposium and Spring Entrepreneurial Leadership Summit into one Fall
Reeves School of Business Symposium and Awards Dinner.
The keynote speaker for the event was Charlie Brock. He spoke on "transforming cities through innovation and leadership".
Charlie Brock has been CEO of Launch Tennessee since January, 2013 and has been a serial entrepreneur for nearly 20 years.
Formerly part of the $100M, family-owned Brock Candy, Charlie is
recognized as a shining star in Southeastern entrepreneurship and
ecosystem development. His was among the visions driving the
transformation of Chattanooga, aka “the Gig City,” from a sleepy,
polluted southern river town into a leading hotbed for innovation (which
now enjoys the country’s fastest internet and smartest electric grid).
Early-stage investment in Tennessee has increased 100% during Charlie’s
leadership of Tennessee’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
