Taking Flight: Business Leaders Executing Plans for Success

The Tulane Business Forum is "Taking Flight," and this year's dynamic group of locally and nationally renowned business leaders will share how they are executing their plans for success. Hear how Louis Armstrong International Airport is literally reaching new altitudes with its plans for a new terminal or how Children's Hospital Medical Center has expanded its success beyond pediatrics. Find out why Smoothie King is becoming a household name for more than smoothies, and learn how Superior Energy's stock is soaring while it helps clients extract more energy from the depths.

Join the Tulane Association of Business Alumni, the Freeman School of Business at Tulane University and IBERIABANK as they present the 35th annual forum, Taking Flight: Business Leaders Executing Plans for Success, where these business leaders and others will share the secret of their successes in an enlightening and entertaining look at best business practices.
