CPE Leadership Conference: The Future of Leadership: Adapting to a Changing Landscape

The Interim Director of Georgia Southern’s Division of Continuing & Professional Education (CPE), Deedee Southerlin, Ed.D., specializes in customized leadership training for Industry groups throughout Georgia and the Southeast region. With the vast expansion of industry booming into the Statesboro and Savannah areas, Southerlin has witnessed a change in the workforce environment in our area. To make a meaningful impact on talent retention, leaders must learn to adapt to stay competitive and provide effective leadership and growth opportunities within their own organizations.

Keynote speakers include Brent Stubbs, Ed.D., Senior Manager of Learning and Development at Hyundai Motor Group Metaplant America, and Justin Farquhar, Vice President of Workforce for the Savannah Economic Development Authority. Stubbs will discuss embracing diversity in the workforce while navigating cultural differences and cultivating competency. Farquhar will focus on addressing challenges and opportunities in the regional workforce while planning for the future. 

Seeing a need for further professional development in this area, CPE has created the “CPE Leadership Conference: The Future of Leadership: Adapting to a Changing Landscape”. The conference is to be held May 17th, 2024 at the CPE building located at 10449 US-301 S., Statesboro, Ga.

Additional topics include Cultivating Employee Engagement, Leveraging AI Tools for Efficient Leadership, Uncovering Your Leadership DNA, Understanding HR Dynamics in Korean-owned Tier 1 Hyundai Supplier Companies in South Georgia, and many more.
