The Business Designer: The Leader Needed for Success in Today’s Turbulent, Competitive World (LIVESTREAM)

March 4, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| TIGER Talk

Please register by 10 pm on Thu Mar 3.
At 11 pm, we’ll email you a Zoom link to access the LIVESTREAM the next day.

It’s no secret that businesses and other organizations are feeling the impact of dramatically accelerated change and resulting disruptions. Leaders are facing unprecedented challenges in every aspect of the modern enterprise. These challenges have created a need for significantly different leadership approaches. As a result, the 150-year pre-eminence of the modern “Business Administrator” is giving way to a new story featuring a new kind of leader: “The Business Designer.”

In this TIGER Talk, Eric Lloyd, Director of Denison Edge (a multi-faceted new program, recently launched by Denison University), will review the most important sources and causes of this momentous shift in leadership thinking. And he will sketch out several of the novel skillsets and innovative approaches your organization will need to employ to deliver excellent results despite our world’s accelerating pace of disruption!


Eric Lloyd is the Director of Denison Edge, located in the Columbus Arena District. Denison Edge was created to help students and working professionals build skills and gain experiences to prepare for the workplace of tomorrow. Denison Edge provides a hands-on, high-touch learning environment where industry experts equip liberal arts students and recent graduates with the relevant skills and knowledge for launching, pivoting, or accelerating their preferred career into today’s labor market. Denison Edge course offerings include updated approaches to Marketing, Sales, Logistics, Accounting, Finance, plus many others.

Eric joined Denison Edge in early 2021, moving from Otterbein University where he served as MBA Program Director. Previously, Eric held leadership roles at Bluewolf (an IBM Company), American Municipal Power (a non-profit utility company servicing eight states), and Varo Engineers (a Salas O’Brien company). And before that, Eric served as an internal consultant at Nationwide Insurance and as an electrical engineer in automation and material handling.
