Study Hall partner to deliver keynote address at University of Tampa Global Knowledge Summit

Study Hall Partner and Managing Director Rob Iles will deliver the keynote address at the University of Tampa’s 2013 Global Knowledge Summit.

The Global Knowledge Summit is an annual educational exchange program between the University of Tampa and Fundação Getulio Vargas(FGV). FGV is a Brazilian higher education institution founded in 1944, which offers regular courses of economics, business administration, law, social sciences and information technology management. Originally founded as a training ground for public and private sector management positions, FGV has grown and expanded and is now considered by Foreign Policy magazine to be a top-5 ‘policymaker think-tank’ worldwide. Each summer, a contingent of FGV’s professional adult students travels to Tampa for an intense weeklong coursework session focused on business and economic issues, working with and learning from business and professional leaders from Tampa Bay. This year’s educators and presenters include representatives from the University, as well as the Tampa Port Authority, Franklin Templeton, Ciminelli Real Estate Services, Marketing Consulting Associates and others.

Mr. Iles will deliver the keynote address on 15 August, speaking on primary market research, best practices and current trends in the industry.
