Speaker: Judith Barnes '71, '84
Friday, September 12, 2014
12:00 noon to 1:00 pm
Judith Barnes, Ph.D., is an entrepreneur, educator, speaker, and writer with a four-decade national consultancy in communication, technical communication, marketing, and advertising.
As a result of deciding to become a consultant in 1971 – a very non-traditional choice back – she has had the pleasure of working with people in a wide range of fields including technology, fashion retailing and manufacturing, finance, automotive, business and industry, education, arts, and healthcare. Judy was also a founding officer of a company commercializing micro fuel cells as a future power source for portable electronics, a longtime Adjunct Professor for the Executive MBA program in the Lally School of Management & Technology at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and is a frequent guest lecturer in Rensselaer’s leadership programs.
Judy has authored five books, and her essays have aired on public radio. She was a co-writer and executive producer for a short film on personal responsibility screened at over 25 film festivals. The film was also featured on a public television program and used by therapists nationwide. In addition, she is a frequent guest speaker and lecturer for educational, civic, and cultural groups.
Judy has a Ph.D. and M.S. from Rensselaer. She has received numerous professional awards; has been active in leadership positions on the boards of many civic, educational, and arts organizations; and has extensive experience in institutional development and community fundraising activities.
Having come into contact with people in so many different lines of work, Judy has many interesting stories to tell. Come hear about some of her exciting and perhaps unusual assignments. I'd like to hear about the job she's now working on for Radio City Music Hall's Rockettes.
Everyone is invited. Bring your lunch or pick up one at the Library Café. Dessert will be provided.
