As with other 2020 graduates, Covid-19 has tempered our celebration of co-founder Jason Roberson earning his MBA from Texas Christian University’s Neeley School of Business. It’s ironically fitting that he would graduate during this unprecedented pandemic. One of the keys to a successful business is maintaining the agility to deal with unexpected forces.
At this stage in our careers we don’t need fancy schmancy degrees to signal our competence, but rather our compassion. It is more of a service to our customers. It means we understand the pressures you’re fighting off and those you choose to embrace, from the threats of new competitors to your strategy for protecting bargaining power with suppliers and customers.
Business isn’t static; you’re operating in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environment. Your mind is busy processing capital requirements, speed of expansion, scale and scope projections, fluctuations in size of your market, strategic alliances, changing risk assessments and so much more.
We’re proud to be among the employers celebrating the Class of 2020. Covid-19 may have delayed their cap and gown celebrations, but not their willingness to address the challenges that await them.
