An Aggie Heads Back to School

Will she spend as much time at the Dixie Chicken as before?

Did you know Satori Marketing’s CEO, Owner, and Marketer-in-Chief is an Aggie? Of course you did! From the class ring on her finger to the baseball cap on her head, she is a proud representative of all things A&M.  That’s why we are so stoked to announce she is participating in the pilot Leading Champions program, an executive development program made possible by the Texas A&M University Mays Business School’s partnership with A&M University Athletics.

During three days in April, Marché will be attending focused sessions, experiential learning activities, self-assessments and simulations, taught by the renowned Mays Business School faculty in conjunction with the coaching staff of TAMU Athletics. In addition to strengthening her business and leadership acumen (even more), our boss will also get to meet with the coaching staff, tour exclusive A&M sports facilities, and participate in cutting-edge experiential activities tied to Texas A&M Athletics.

Marché will be joined by executive-level leaders and decision makers from a variety of organizations (One of whom is a fellow Aggie alum and Satori client herself, Martha Parker of m-erg). The program was announced in September at a Corporate Connections reception, where Mays Dean Eli Jones, along with Texas A&M University President Michael K. Young and Mays Assistant Dean Ben Welch, spoke about the university’s dedication to lifelong learning, and the Mays School’s steps to provide for it.

In October, A&M Athletics Director Scott Woodward gave details about the program to the Faculty Senate.

“There are many core principles of athletics such as leadership, team building and sustaining excellence that are applicable in the business world,” said Woodward. “We are excited to partner with Mays Business School on this innovative program that brings together our championship-caliber coaches with the excellent faculty of the Mays Business School.”

The Center for Executive Development at Mays also offers executive certificates in business essentials, energy, health care, construction and cyber data in programs at the main campus in College Station, as well as at sites around the world. Welch, who has led the Mays Business School executive education program since 1990, believes the Leading Champions partnership leverages two strengths of the Texas A&M into one dynamic package.

“The Leading Champions Executive Program is an opportunity to submerge yourself into Texas A&M’s winning culture while strengthening your leadership skill set,” said Welch.

With this exciting opportunity, we know Marché will bring home even more of that Aggie spirit, and will keep Satori Marketing a competitive force in the Houston business landscape.
