Comcast sends heavy-hitters to speak at SCTE-Tuck program
The second edition of the SCTE-Tuck Executive Leadership Program at Dartmouth College will feature Comcast’s top three cable executives.
The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers announced today that Comcast’s Neil Smit, Tony Werner and John Schanz will serve as guest presenters at next year’s SCTE-Tuck Executive Leadership Program at Dartmouth College.
Werner, executive vice president and CTO of Comcast, and Schanz, executive vice president and chief network officer, will join Comcast Cable President Smit, who was recently promoted to CEO of the operator’s cable division, for a discussion of critical issues facing the cable industry.
The SCTE said the discussion is designed to provide additional context around business and leadership skills that the SCTE-Tuck curriculum comprises.
“Helping our current and future technologists improve organizational and leadership skills is essential to the future success of our industry,” Schanz said. “We anticipate that the tools acquired at the SCTE-Tuck Executive Leadership Program will help our executives to evaluate new technologies and business models that can help us to drive continued growth in the future.”
The program is from April 29 to May 4 at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College’s Hanover, N.H., campus.
Applications are now being accepted for the program, which is open to qualified executives in the United States and abroad. The application deadline is Feb. 15, and the class size is limited. Additional information is available on the SCTE’s website.
