Harvard Business School Club of Philadelphia hosts conference for nonprofit executives


More than 70 CEOs, executive directors, and senior executives from major regional and local nonprofit organizations will converge on the Comcast Center in Philadelphia on Nov. 13 for the Harvard Business School Club of Philadelphia’s annual conference for nonprofit executives.
Stacey Childress, Lecturer in General Management at the Harvard Business School and a co-founder of the Public Education Leadership Project at Harvard University, will address the conference’s theme: “Implementation–Translating Strategy into Results.” COO of Comcast Corporation Stephen Burke will deliver the keynote address.
Unlike many similar conferences, HBSCP employs a case study format of the kind that is used at Harvard Business School. Such a format encourages more discussion and interaction, with each participant bringing his or her unique experience to the table, says HBSCP Board Member Denean Williams.
Conference attendees, numbering about 70, include leaders from Maternity Care Coalition, Philabundance, Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation, the Free Library of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, the Greater Philadelphia Urban Affairs Coalition, Boys & Girls Club of Camden County, the Food Trust and others.
HBSCP, one of the oldest alumni organizations in the country, represents more than 1,100 Harvard Business School alumni in the greater Philadelphia region. More than 100 local nonprofit executive directors have attended one or more HBSCP conferences.
