SALISBURY, MD---Dr. Frank Shipper of Salisbury University’s Management and Marketing Department in the Franklin P. Perdue School of Business recently presented at one of the world’s most prestigious institutions of higher learning — again.
For the third consecutive year, Shipper was an invited speaker on employee ownership at the annual Business Fights Poverty conference, held at the University of Oxford in England. His presentation earned praise from attendees, according to conference coordinator John Hoffmire of Oxford’s Saïd Business School. The conference drew over 450 people from more than 50 countries.
