On December 1, 2005, Weatherhead's Executive Education Associate Dean of External Relations and Executive Education Betty Vandenbosch, Director of Custom Programs Molly McGuigan, and Assistant Director of Affiliate Programs Jennifer Carr along with Bob Stilliard (a colleague from Ashridge University in England) presented at the UNICON conference held at Harvard Business School in Cambridge, MA. The topic was Extending Our Reach Beyond the Classroom: Building Client Capability.

Founded in 1972 as an association of executive education program directors, UNICON has evolved from an informal common-interest group to an incorporated non-profit organization committed to advance the field of university-sponsored executive education.


This interactive session was very positively received with a “full house” of conference attendees. It focused on ways that clients can identify more cost effective and less time consuming methods of cascading learning throughout their organizations through:

· Executive coaching
· Large-scale change initiatives
· Live cases

Through the presentation and open discussion format, participants learned the key benefits and challenges of these services and obtained new ideas for:

· Managing services
· Engaging the faculty and other providers
· Controlling quality
· Pricing
· Evaluating if and how these activities strengthen the competitive position of universities in the marketplace.

Feedback on the session included comments like, “I didn’t know Executive Education could be so creative!”
