Seattle U. CBO Connie Kanter on Building a Career Around Asking the Right Questions

CBO Connie Kanter knows something about rapid innovation. In fact, her role at Seattle U. is her first role in education after a career in a high tech start-up. “You have to roll your shirt sleeves up and everybody does everything. You’re living in a constrained environment.” That the rules of finance in a start-up are so similar to the rules of finance in higher education are where the parallels begin.

Kanter shares her insights into working as a CBO with an inclination toward curiosity, to asking the right questions and inviting the right participants to the table with facing difficult challenges.

The story of engagement at Seattle U is a model for others toward building strong relationships across the aisles. Join us!
