Some of this year's keynote presenters include Dell President and COO Kevin Rollins, Bain Capital Managing Director Robert Gay, former Houston City Chief Administrative Officer Al Haines, Senator Orrin Hatch, and former BYU football star and TV Sports Anchor Vai Sikahema.
"The Management Conference is an excellent way to interact with some of the innovative leaders and creative managers shaping the business world today," says Marriott School Dean Ned C. Hill. "The conference provides a prime opportunity to refine general management skills and add depth to a particular business specialization."
