‘Management Guru’ to Keynote Cable-Tec Expo Awards Luncheon

The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) and its global arm, the Intentional Society of Broadband Experts (ISBE), has tapped author and educator Syd Finkelstein to keynote the Cable-Tec Expo’s annual awards luncheon, set for Wednesday, Sept. 28 in Philadelphia.

SCTE/ISBE said Finkelstein, whose classes are part of the organizations’ Leadership Institute at Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth program, will address themes from his 20 books, including Why Smart Executives Fail and Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent.

Finkelstein’s remarks at the noon ET luncheon will follow three awards for SCTE/ISBE leadership: the Member of the Year Award, the Women in Technology Award, and the Hall of Fame induction.

“The expertise shared by our SCTE/ISBE-Tuck faculty at the Awards Luncheon each year speaks to issues that are key to the future of our industry,” Lindsay Johnston, senior vice president, operations for SCTE/ISBE, said in a statement. “Like Marshall Goldsmith and Ron Adner in recent years, Syd Finkelstein’s insights into the characteristics and thought processes that make business leaders successful will be of value to our entire luncheon audience.”

Cable-Tec Expo 2016 is set for September 26-29 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
