These three 15-minute
panels will be moderated by Russ
Wahlers, chairperson of the Miller College of Business Department of
Marketing, and will feature topics such as:
• “Tone at the
Trump: The Impact of President Trump’s Idiolect on the Discourse of Conference
Calls”—This presentation from
Dr. Angelo will provide evidence that as President Donald Trump became less
popular, firms shied away from using Trump language in both their prepared
remarks and in their responses to questions from analysts.
Social Responsibility”—This presentation from Dr. Goldsby is about how startup entrepreneurs who
are working on disruptive innovations need to look ahead at how society and
government may respond if they shake up the status quo.
• “Do NBA Players Have
a Hot Hand? The Importance of Location, Location, Location”—This
presentation from Dr. Nesson uses data from the NBA 3-Point Contests from
1986-2019 to prove that players can exhibit a hot hand while shooting
3-pointers, but only within certain locations.
Cutting Edge Conversations viewers don’t have to be in
business—or even study business—to benefit from the interesting discussion of
these issues. All three professors will share their insights and analysis in a
way that will be immediately understandable to all audiences. There will also
be time for viewers to ask questions.
