The communication department welcomed S.A.F.E. Management's Hunter McIntyre (in the photo, right), the director of operations in Baltimore, as the 12th annual Shapiro/Rouse lecturer at Stevenson University. He was introduced by Business Communication alum Will Beatson (left). Hunter spoke to a crowd in the Claire Moore room on Nov. 19, 2019, about the importance of communication in the business forum, and was helped with examples from Will as well. Both men were welcomed by Chip Rouse (center), associate professor of business communication, and everyone in the crowd was treated to a copy of Perfecting Your Pitch by Ron Shapiro, a book that Hunter worked on and spoke about during his talk, and which he gave away as a gift.
The series was begun 12 years ago through a generous donation by Ron Shapiro -- negotiator, agent, attorney, author. The department of business communication is grateful for Ron's generous spirit.
Now that the National Communication Association's 105th convention has concluded, let's take a look at how Stevenson's communication professors were involved in the conference.
Dr. Heather Harris presented at two sessions: "Celebrating the Contributions and Impact of African American Health Communication Pioneer Dr. Carolyn A. Stroman" and "Women in the Running: Surviving the Races." She also chaired a panel called "Communication for Survival in Post Obama Neo-Race Realities."
Dr. D. M. Greene presented in the panel titled "Women in the Running: Surviving the Races," and co-chaired a panel called "African Americans’ Survival of Health Disparities."
Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus presented as part of "Thriving and Surviving in the Social Media Age: Leveraging Technology for Effective Teaching and Research," and in "A Student's Guide to Surviving Communication Ethics." She also served as a respondent in "Contributions from Chinese Communication Studies, Disability Studies, Communication & the Future, Freedom of Expression, Mass Communication, Performance Studies and Philosophy of Communication."
Congratulations to the professors for sharing their research with a national audience!
